One of the many questions that people involved in adoption are frequently asked is, "What happens at an adoption placement?". The answer is that each placement, just like each adoption, is unique and beautiful.
April Fool’s Day—yeah--not so funny—this was the day I found out I was pregnant. Same story you hear all the time—I met a guy, thought he loved me, made some poor choices and realized I was pregnant (of course two weeks after he had already dumped me and moved on to his new girlfriend). I was scared. I was 20 at the time, going to college, working as a server, and living with my parents—my parents! What were they going to say—were they going to kick me out on the spot? In tears I told them and in tears they hugged me and told me that we would get through this.
