This is the first time I've been able to share this on JM, as I didn't want my DD's dad to use me being a birth mother against me in court.

I will make this brief. I became a birthmom on 1/11/97, when I was 15 years old. I didn't have my pregnancy confirmed until I was 4 months pregnant, and my parents didn't know until I was 7 months pregnant. The months following placing him I regretted is so badly, and my heart hurt when I saw young moms with their babies. I feel very differently now, and don't regret my decision.

The adoption was supposed to be semi-open, and we'd exchange letters and pictures anonymously, but the adoptive parents never fulfilled their end of the deal. I have recently decided to try to contact the lawyer who handled the adoption, and see if I can write to them. It's a big step, but I feel ready.

Just wanted to say hi....it's really hard finding support for this kind of thing, but it's even harder not being open about it.
