I was recently able to work with a birth mother who had been in a very difficult, abusive situation. She was placing her baby girl for adoption to give her every chance in life, and to give herself a new start. She finished all the necessary paperwork very quickly with Act of Love Adoption Agency, and decided it would be best to get out of her abusive situation and make a fresh start by delivering her baby in Utah.
She came to Utah and immediately felt the care and concern of the agency staff. She received wonderful counseling and felt secure for the first time in a very long time. She was able to look through and ponder over adoptive family profiles. She chose a family that shared many of her same interests, and she knew she was placing her baby in the right home. She was finally in a place to make some good decisions. She decided she needed to plan for her future so she could eventually get custody back of her other 2 children. She decided after she had her baby and placed her with the adoptive family, she would go to the state where most of her family lived. She was going to make a fresh start and find a job.
This birth mother had her baby and placed her into the arms of the adoptive family. It was beautiful. She took a bit of time to recover, then traveled to be near her family. Adoption allowed her to move forward and stop the cycle of abuse. She was finally safe and thriving. Here is the sweet message she left for Act of Love Adoption Agency:
“It has been a pleasure getting to know you. Thank you for being so caring and kind through this hard time in my life.”
