“It’s a good feeling.  I am not ashamed of what I did.”

No birthmother should ever feel ashamed for making the choice to place for adoption.

“You have to be strong to go through this, and it will make you strong in the long run.”

Placing for adoption is absolutely not easy– it takes someone strong and brave. These interviews show how everyone has a different story and different emotions.  Every one interviewed in this video truly is brave and beautiful inside and out. Adoption defies odds, nature, and statistics. This video helps explain why women choose to fight those statistics head on and make the choice they feel is best for their baby.
