Laura was of Russian descent, but was born in the United States. When she found out she was unexpectedly pregnant, and the birth father wanted no involvement, Laura knew that placing her baby for adoption was her best option. Her heritage was very important to her, and she wanted to place her baby with a Russian family.
Laura called Act of Love Adoption agency in Utah, and told them her request. They had an adoptive family that matched her criteria! She saw their profile and immediately fell in love with them! She knew this was the right decision for her baby girl. She wanted her baby girl to have a safe, loving home that she was not ready to provide at this time in her life.
Laura decided to work with Act of Love Adoption Agency, in Utah for her adoption plan. It was such a positive experience. She had a great coordinator that was a great support and she had a great caseworker and adoption counselor. She was also able to meet with the adoptive family and spend some time sharing her hopes and dreams for her daughter. Everything was in place!
Soon, it was time for Laura to give birth to her baby girl. The delivery went smoothly and Laura felt great. She asked the adoptive family to come to the hospital. The family came to the hospital and they all started visiting. Laura shared her feelings about not being able to raise her daughter at this time and was able to write a letter to be shared with her daughter when she was older. They all took pictures together for the baby’s life book and for Laura’s journal. This special time meant so much to Laura and her adoptive family.
The adoptive family felt so much love for Laura and their new baby girl. They were all surrounded by so many people at the hospital and the adoption agency that truly wanted what was best for all of them. The adoption turned out perfectly, and Laura had complete peace that she made the right decision.
