Adoption and Beyond is now a partner agency with BraveLove – A pro-adoption movement dedicated to changing the perception of adoption by acknowledging birth moms for their brave decision – and together we bring you some honest stories directly from birth parents. The first BraveLove story we are sharing is Hannah’s as she shares her emotional journey as a young high schooler. Watch the video to hear more about her story.

Hannah’s Story from BraveLove: Hannah was juggling life as a busy high schooler – friends, family, track, schoolwork, a boyfriend. Then once she discovered she was pregnant, life slowed down. She considered all her options and did what was best for her and her child. Watch her story unfold as she details her emotions, the decision-making process, and then even the surprises along the way.
