Camille was a great girl. She had a four year old daughter and they lived with her aunt. Camille worked a lot of hours and very hard at her job to help support her aunt and daughter. She lived in a small town in Georgia where everyone knew each other and all about their personal lives. Camille didn’t love this part of living in a small town.
Camille had a short relationship with a boy she grew up with. He moved away and they lost contact with each other. Many months later, Camille realized that she was pregnant. She tried to find her friend, the father of this baby, but he was nowhere to be found. Camille was in denial about the pregnancy herself, so she kept working, taking care of her daughter, and putting off telling her aunt about the pregnancy.
Camille knew she needed to get into a doctor. She set up an appointment and at that same time, she decided that placing her baby for adoption would be the best choice. Camille called Act of Love Adoption Agency in Utah and was so happy to find some help! She started to talk to a counselor. She made her first doctor appointment and they told her she was due within 3 weeks and would need to have a C-section! Act of Love Adoption Agency started to work very quickly to have everything ready for Camille.
Just a few days later, Camille called her caseworker at Act of Love Adoption Agency to say her water had broken. She headed to the hospital where they decided the C-section would be done within a few hours. The adoptive family, as well as the adoption agency staff were in Georgia to support Camille with her adoption plan. Only 1 friend knew about the pregnancy. Not even her aunt knew. Camille wanted to keep her privacy because she felt it would be best for her emotionally if no one was aware.
Camille chose not to see the baby, but was so happy with the support of the adoption agency. The adoptive family immediately fell in love with their baby girl! Camille met with the attorney’s office to do all the legal paperwork. She was able to quickly get back into her normal routine of work, and activities with her daughter and aunt. Camille was so glad that adoption was an option for her and her baby!
