I am adopted. My birthmother had just graduated college when she was pregnant with me. She had no job, no place to live or anything. The Catholic church put her up in housing while she had me. Then when I was put up for adoption she was… able to move on with her life. She found a husband and had a family of her own. This is how I know there is a God out there. God has saved my life. When she was pregnant with me she surrouneded herself with Christians who always believed I was a baby and I was important even in the womb. Thank you God and thank you birthmother so much for going through that nine months of pregnancy. Pregnancy is not easy. I am very thankful to my adopted parents of course. That goes without question. I have always looked at adoption as a gift. She wanted me raised as a Catholic and because the faithful Catholic people were so involved in my adoption process that is why I am Catholic. If people don’t want their kids to be Catholic thats fine. There are many many adoption agencies out there. I put adoption agencies into google and a whole page of them popped up. I just don’t feel like there advertised as much. To me abortion is selfish, convenient, expensive, and murder. From reading my story I hope you understand why. I really want my story to be an inspiration and another viewpoint to see that adoption really does make a difference.
