Sarah had led a difficult life. She had been in a drug rehab program, which she successfully completed. After rehab, she was able to secure a job, an apartment, and custody of her children. She also had a great supportive boyfriend, Mike. Life was finally starting to stabilize for Sarah and her children. Things were going smoothly until Sarah found out that she was very unexpectedly pregnant. She and Mike were not in a position to raise a baby and meet all the baby’s needs. They pondered and discussed their options. They finally decided to look into adoption.
Sarah made a phone call to Act of Love Adoption Agency. Her call was picked up quickly, and Sarah had an immediate sense of peace. She spoke to a very kind woman who explained the adoption process to her, answered her questions, and mailed out a packet of paperwork and information. Sarah and Mike received the packet and knew that adoption was right for them and their unborn baby.
A wonderful adoption counselor came and met with Sarah and Mike. Their adoption journey began. They started looking at adoptive family profiles, and carefully considered each family they looked at. Both Sarah and Mike knew that Scott and Lisa were the right family for their baby girl. They spoke on the phone, and their decision was confirmed.
Sarah went into labor and had a healthy baby girl. As soon as Mike and Sarah saw their sweet baby, they wondered if adoption was the right choice. It would be so hard to place her with a family. However, they decided to have Scott and Lisa come to the hospital to meet the baby. As soon as Scott and Lisa walked in the room, there was peace. They held this sweet baby girl for the first time. As Mike and Sarah watched Scott and Lisa become emotional, they knew that placing their baby was still the right choice. They would give her a better life than they could provide for her right now.
The adoption agency completed the paperwork with Sarah and Mike and Sarah and Mike placed their baby girl in the open arms of Scott and Lisa. Their adoption experience was so beautiful and they look forward to each picture and letter they exchange!
