How Do I Choose Between Parenting and Adoption: Lindsey Shares Her Story!

Adoption.com Original Video

Denalee Chapman August 27, 2015

The choice between parenting and placing a child for adoption is a difficult choice. Birth mothers act out of love. When they have an opportunity to become educated about their options, their choice becomes a bit easier. Support groups, forums and educational situations help a birth mother make the decision that is right for her and for her child.

In this video Lindsey talks about her decision to place her child for adoption, her trepidation about connecting with an agency, and the little things during her journey that helped her make the decision she felt best about.
