Debby's Adoption Story
I told my children that I was going to give the baby to a couple who were very sad because they could not 'grow their own' and that allowing someone else to bring up this one would mean I would be better able to look after them. The adoption society allowed me to meet my child's new parents at the hand-over. It was a fantastic occasion, very positive, and I came away secure in the knowledge that he was already greatly loved. 3 months later, I received a photo of him via the adoption society. He was smiling - happy and content.
I recommend anyone who is pregnant with a child they don't want to think seriously about adoption. You can always change your mind if you like after the birth but, if you don't, you will have made a childless couple very happy, given your child a good chance in life and freed yourself from a lifetime of parenthood that you never asked for. Truly a 'win-win' solution".
