Welcome! I'm Jen, birth mom to Olivia who is now 10. I was 16 when I got pregnant with her and 17 when she was born. It was the hardest and best decision I still to this day have ever made. You are INCREDIBLE for working through such a challenge!

I personally wanted the adoptive parents there too. I felt like that was what an adoptive mom would need to resolve and bond with the baby. I wanted her to cut the cord, hold her first, be there with her as I was dealing with my own thing. However Olivia's mom couldn't get there until later in the evening and I was perfectly fine with that. It gave me time to deal, get to know her, feed her, love on her. It was special and I am glad I got that time looking in peace at the little fingers and toes and marveling at what was still "my" baby.

You will figure things out. Please please please stay in contact on here. Having the contact with people who have been where you are is vital.
