    How Adoption Can Benefit Your Family

    How Adoption Can Benefit Your Family

    Adoption occupies an unusual position within our culture. Most people know of it. But at the same time, most people also have a very vague understanding of what adoption actually entails. Our ideas about adoption tend to come more from TV and movies than direct experience. And saying that fiction takes unfortunate liberties with the adoption process would be an understatement. In reality, adoption offers some amazing ways to build or benefit a family.

    Ways Adopting a Child Can Change Your Life for the Better

    Nothing can change the course of your life in the way deciding to adopt a child can. While the journey to adopting can be quite difficult at times, the end result can make it all worthwhile.

    Watching Your Baby Grow Up Without You

    Watching Your Baby Grow Up Without You

    I want to start off with saying I wasn't forced into this decision. It is my choice and the best one I could've made. I was 19-years-old when I found out I was pregnant, and 20 when I gave birth to him. The father and I were going through some tough times as it was, and adding a baby into the mix definitely was not our plan. We sat down and talked about what we were going to do and the original plan was abortion. As we were sitting in the clinic waiting for the doctor, I came the realization I couldn't do it. This baby deserves to have a life. He told me about the wonderful woman he worked with and we started setting up the plan to adopt out my baby to her and her husband, and it is the best choice I could have ever made.

    Connecting Hearts

    Hello, my name is Hannah. My story starts on a cold day in December of 2000. Two people who I can tell you, were not in love, made love between the sheets in an old rusted trailer. Their names were Anne and Don. Anne and Don were the opposite of responsible. In fact the two didn’t have jobs, they lived off of government checks. Anne and Don were merely what you’d call “a couple." They screwed around from time to time. On this particular day in December, Anne and Don hit it off. Little did they know as they made love on that frightful day, a child would come in the following weeks. That child was me, Hannah.

    Baby No. 13 & His Nurse

    Baby No. 13 & His Nurse

    It was a seasonably cool Thursday in Saint Louis, Missouri. The date was October 6, 1904 and the St. Louis World's Fair is in full swing. Patrons had come from all over to enjoy such novelties as cotton candy, iced tea, peanut butter, and hot dogs. They could promenade down the pike to observe all sorts of new inventions never before fathomed.
