Have you considered adoption?
"I am a 43 year old single mom, who more than anything wanted to be a mother.
After years of trying to conceive, there was no success. I began to feel depressed
and alone. I explained my situation to a very close friend. Her response was
“why not adopt”. I began to visit the library, read books on the adoption experience
and involve myself by attending adopting seminars. After attending the first
seminar, I cried all the way home. I knew this was the path for me to take. After
beginning the adoption process, six months later I received a call. It was the social
worker informing me that my son had been born.
This experience has changed my life from that day up until now. I have a beautiful
son who has added so much love and joy to my life. He is my inspiration. I am
happier now than I have ever been. What a Blessing he has been for me and my
family. I share my story everywhere I go. Never give up hope and belief.
Miracles happen every day. I would like to encourage all mothers who are not in a
situation to care for their unborn child and have to make a choice, please consider
adoption. There are numerous loving families who are struggling through fertility
issues who would love the chance to be able to adopt. Children are a gift.
They are a Blessing and they deserve a chance to have a wonderful life."
