Stacy's Teen Adoption Story

Stacy decides on adoption

It was in the best interest of my beautiful baby girl

When I was 15 I had sex for the first time. It just sort of happened. You know what I mean? Several weeks later I discovered that I was pregnant. "But how could I be?" I thought, "We used protection." What I didn't know until I confronted my boyfriend about it is that the condom had ripped, and he had been worried about it for weeks!!! Why didn't he tell me? I don't know.

When I got the guts to tell my mom, she was really upset. We were both bawling. I thought she was going to disown me, but to my surprise she didn't. She was actually very supportive.

I ended up making the decision to have my baby adopted because I had so much more to accomplish in my teenage years. After carrying the baby for nine months it was very hard to give her up, but I knew it was in the best interest of my beautiful baby girl.
