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

Thank you AlexKatieAiden Mommy for my siggy!
