She wanted to place her child for adoption, but she had found no one to help her

Published on

Adoption represents a loving option and a promising alternative to the finality of abortion.

The subject was a teenage girl from a southern state who had relocated to a Midwestern state to reside with her aunt during the remainder of her pregnancy.

At the time, I was employed as a pro-life coordinator at my place of worship, which represented a convergence of our respective spheres of influence.

A mutual acquaintance facilitated our communication by telephone. I recall the profound exasperation in her voice as she recounted the numerous dead ends she had encountered. I empathised with her immediately.

It was fortuitous that I was acquainted with a couple who were interested in adopting. The couple had previously adopted a baby boy, who was the light of their lives.

The couple provided me with the name and contact details of their adoption attorney, and I subsequently referred the young woman to the aforementioned lawyer.

It subsequently transpired that a legal prohibition precluded the couple from adopting a child so soon after their initial adoption. Nevertheless, the attorney was able to assist the teenager in navigating the process of placing her child for adoption.

As we commemorate National Adoption Month, we reflect on the numerous families that have been formed not by blood, but by the unwavering commitment of those who have chosen to become parents through adoption. These individuals are our relatives, friends, and colleagues, and they deserve our support.

Let us endeavor to streamline the adoption process and make it more affordable for families. It is a loving option and a promising alternative to the finality of abortion.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
