Let’s face it.. we have all thought one time or another that if we had known the outcome of a situation, we might have done something different.
My story begins and ends with a lie... An Adoption Agency.
I got pregnant unexpectedly and already had two children I could barely take care of. My youngest sons birth father had up and left before he was even a year old. I had a job but didn’t quite make enough for all of my bills, let alone another child. So I stupidly thought, “Maybe I could place him for adoption and still be able to be in his life”.
I met with an adoption agency and got the ball rolling. I was sent several, and I mean several family profiles of Potential families and carefully selected the adoptive couple — the father was in Sport Medicine and the mother a dance instructor who planned to stay home with the baby for the first year. Plus, the couple had 6 children of their own, so I thought it would have been perfect! They had a solid marriage, high school sweethearts! Most importantly, we shared the same values on Jesus Christ and a few other things that meant the world to me. They had a lot of pictures, and I mean a lot of pictures in their profile that just made me think they were honestly the best couple we could have asked for.
