Bravelove – Why Adoption? Stephanie’s Story

Adoption, Birth Mothers, Birthparent Stories

Adoption & Beyond is 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. Watch the video below for Stephanie’s story.

“We decided together that we wanted to pursue adoption since we were both not ready to be parents.”

Stephanie and her boyfriend placed their son for adoption while they were in college.  Eight years later they are able to continue to surround him with love and support through an open adoption.

“That’s what is so beautiful about open adoption.  He doesn’t have to wonder, he doesn’t have to guess.  He can just ask. He can ask us why.  He can see us and say ‘okay that could have been my life, why is it not my life? And we can explain.'”

This is Stephanie’s story and why she chose adoption.
