Cradle My Heart Today | Taylor’s story 3-29-17
Taylor thought abortion was her only answer to being pregnant at 17. Listen now:
But when a family friend suggested adoption, Taylor knew it was the right choice.
She told Bethany.org, “I wanted the best for the baby.”
As she learned more about the adoption process, and Taylor eventually selected a couple, open adoption created a loving support system for both Taylor and the adoptive parents.
Taylor said, “Two days after my son Liam’s birth, we had an entrustment ceremony in the hospital room where a few people spoke. Then I handed Meg and Joe my son. It was the hardest day of my life. I had to think of Liam instead of me this time.”
Today Taylor is content knowing she made the best decision for Liam.
“I’m going to be a really good mom someday,” Taylor says, “just not yet.”
When parenting is just not possible, abortion can seem like the only way out. Open adoption allows young women to write a better future for their children and themselves.
In humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2:3-4
