“By 20 weeks, we started doing conference calls and Skype calls every month or so, sometimes every two weeks. I had exactly half of my pregnancy to get to know John and Shauna, and to get an understanding of the adoption process. Every time I talked to John and Shauna, I became more comfortable with them. My doubts disappeared completely, and I truly believed and still believe my son was meant to be theirs.
We decided to keep our adoption semi-open, and for contact to be at a minimum of 6 months, so that we could see the milestones. And if John and Shauna were up to it, they could send us pictures whenever they felt necessary.”
Rachel and Jason are amazing birth parents. They had such a positive adoption experience. If you know anyone who is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, have them call or text 801-671-0401 or 801-450-0094 for help and a listening ear.
