MY LIFE GOING THROUGH ADOPTION This is my life. I am a 23 year-old student going for my GED. I recently found out I was pregnant with my second kid. I am raising my 2 year-old son all by myself. His dad was never around when I needed him. I learned to take care of my son as a single parent. With this second pregnancy, I knew it was going to be harder. I would have to do it all over again and alone. With this pregnancy, the dad didn’t know about it, and I knew he wouldn’t help me because he has two girls that he doesn’t see or support. Adoption was the best thing I could think of. I knew it would be the hardest decision ever in my life. I wanted the baby to go with a family that couldn’t have kids. I knew I couldn’t care for the baby like I wanted to. I was unemployed and I just started going to school for my GED. I knew there would be a family out there that could give the baby the world, I knew I could of but it is better when there are two parents there for support. When I went to my first doctor’s appointment, I asked my doctor if I was a bad person for wanting to give the baby up for adoption. She said no. But I really needed to think about my decision and get the support from my family. My doctor gave me some phone numbers to adoption agencies. She also said to take some time ask any questions I need to ask and pick the right place. I told my mom when I got back from the doctor. It was really hard to tell her because I told her I was only going to have one kid. When I did, we cried together, and then I told her what I wanted to do with the baby and she supported me 100%. She knows what a hard time I had with my son and she did not want to see me go through that all over again. It took me a while to call the numbers, but when I did I was really scared and nervous. I asked all the questions I needed to and I was happy with the Adoption
