First off I would like to say thank you to my caseworker. They were always there when I needed something or when I just wanted to talk. They respected my wishes and didn’t pressure me at all. I know I would have never been able to place the baby if they were not there helping me along the way. I started out choosing a family. I ended up choosing the very first family I called. I know I made the right choice.
I could not have asked for better people. When I was about 6 months pregnant, I moved from Colorado to California to have the baby out there. During this time I got to really know the adoptive family. They sort of became part of my family. I will always consider them my family. I had brought my 18 month old out to California with me also. When the baby was born in September, the family were all there right by my side. My caseworker called me at the hospital to see if I was ok.
That phone call really meant a lot to me. I was always reassured that they cared about not only the baby but about me. Right now I am back in Colorado and doing great. I don’t regret anything for a second. I know my decision was the right one and I was lucky to find people like I did at AdoptHelp to get me through it all and feel good in the end.
