Hello, my name is Nicole. I wasn't adopted but I placed my daughter up for adoption.
I got pregnant at the age of 14 by the guy I thought I would spend the rest of my life with. Well I was wrong, when I told him I was pregnant he said see you later. I felt like such a horrible person to be having a baby with him. When I was about 6 months along I decided I was going to put her up for adoption. My sister and brother in the law at the time were looking to adopt a little girl since they already had 3 boys. My sister and brother in law decided that they would be proud to be my daughters adoptive parents. I gave birth to my daughter on August 6,2006 at 3:45am. She weighed 7lbs 14oz & 19inches long. Her name is Arianna Nicole. She has my middle name to honor me. By this time I was 15 years old and that was the hardest decision I ever had to make, but now that I look back on it I made a wonderful decision for my birth daughter. I see her whenever I please, we have an open adoption with her. She does know I am her birth mother and knows why I gave her up. She is now an amazing, gorgeous, smart, and loving little 4 year old.
Quoting Nicole;;Birth Mom & Pregg:
I'm Meghan and I am a very proud momma to my lil crazy man Sam who is 3. We have a very open adoption with his birth momma and her family. We have tons of visits, call, text, photobucket for pics and videos, facebook, blog, vacations. We are family and I wouldn't have it any other way. Sam loves them and looks forward to seeing them all especially B his birth mom!! We would love to have a more open relationship with his birth dad and his fam but they are not ready for that yet. Hopefully one day. We are friends on fb so we are in contact but have had no visits with them.
We are hoping to adopt again and have turned down situations where expectant moms wanted closed adoptions. We are waiting for the right relationship to show up and complete our family with a baby and more family members!
Glad to see all of the people who have found their birth families, thats so awesome!!! To have answers to lifelong questions is priceless.
To all the birth mom angels.....you're awesome :)
My story is a little bit different. My husband got a woman pregnant two months before we met. The biological mother signed away all her rights and let us take her. We have had her since the moment she was born. She is 4 1/2 years old and one of the happiest (most dramatic) kids I know. I love my daughter with all my heart. Her biological mother had her own reasons for doing what she did for my daughter, however she did drink and smoke through her whole pregnancy stating it wasn't hers and etc. Now I have filed for offical stepparent adoption and have to wait to see if her parents will contest it. Apparently, the grandparents have rights and I am terrified of that.
If they do contest it they can get visitation for summers and every other holiday. It scares because my daughter is only 4. I could never send her off to see stay with someone else. Especially a "Grandmother" that lost all four of her children to the foster care system when they were young and a "grandfather" that was in prision for 12 years for robbery, and evading police.
However, my lawyer stated if their lives are cleaned up now they can still get visitation rights. I don't think it should be there choice, personally. Sorry if that offends anyone. My daughter knows she didn't grow in my belly, but thats the most she seems to comprehend at her age.
I'm not adopted, but when my dad was 16 he had a daughter with his ex girlfriend, and put her up for adoption. Then had a son with another girl and the mother kept him. I wish I could find them. My sister should be around 24 now.
