Were many of you with your partners when you decided to give the child up for adoption?

How do you BOTH come to that point? What if one parent feels it is the best thing and the other doesn't? How do you get past that?

I was not with the biological father of my birth child ever.

I have also wondered about this. How did those of you with the father decide?

At first, it was all HIS decision. He knew all about Gladney (the agency) and the process. I refused.. but the more I looked into it, the more I knew it was right for me. We both walked the walk together. He was right by my side for everything. He was at every U/S and picked me up from all my appts... and he picked me up on weekends to go home. (we were required to live in the "dorm" -home for the pregnant birth moms- for a certain amount of time... otherwise, we lived together). He was a part of every decision etc.

We got married when she was 18 months old.. (just a courthouse wedding since he was entering boot camp a month later). We had our "big" ceremonial wedding exactly a year later and she was our flower girl, her mom was my maid of honor and her brother was our ring bearer.

We really are SOOOOO blessed..
