Christine and Anthony had been together for several years. They had a 3 year old son that meant everything to them. Christine and Anthony both worked jobs in retail stores in California, but their hours had been cut, which created a struggle financially.
Christine found out she was pregnant again. This was much unexpected and both she and Anthony were in denial about it. They put the thoughts of pregnancy in the back of their minds to deal with later. They continued working as they were both looking for second jobs to support their little family.
The pregnancy passed very quickly for Christine. She was working hard and didn’t have much time to think about being pregnant. So when she started feeling miserable one day, she realized that she was probably in labor. Christine called Anthony and asked him to take her to the emergency room. The hospital confirmed that Christine was in labor and progressing quickly!
Christine and Anthony started talking and needed to figure out what they were going to do. They started discussing adoption. They decided they would call some agencies, and if someone could help them quickly, they knew that would mean that adoption was the right decision for their baby.
Anthony looked on-line and found some agencies. When he called Act of Love Adoption Agency in Utah, they responded differently than anyone else! They were able to immediately start helping them. Paperwork and profiles were faxed to the hospital. An adoption counselor was on the phone with them, and staff was headed to support them. Christine and Anthony knew they were making the right decision.
Christine and Anthony still keep in contact with the adoptive family that they chose for their baby girl. They are so grateful for an agency that responded so quickly and was able to help them!
