A Life For My Daughter
Organized by: Caitlin McMillin
Hi, I am eighteen years old and six months pregnant.After being abandoned by the father of my unborn child I knew I could not give the life my daughter-to-be deserves so I started seeking for adoption parents. My biggest fear is not knowing if I will make the right choice with the parents I pick. That was until I asked my Aunt and Uncle to adopt. They have been married for six years and have tried time and time again to start a family of their own. After my Aunt dealt with a brain tumor the loss of four adopted embryos she discovered she was actually pregnant! Unfortunately after ten weeks of carrying her own unborn child she had an other miscarriage. When I asked if she would consider being my daughters adoption parents she said yes right away, that I was giving her the gift of mother God had always planned for her. But with only three months to plan they are finding that the adoption process is going to cost a lot more than expected. We live in different states so on top of attorney fees, home visits, court costs, an interstate compact, etc. they are not allowed to return back to their state, North Carolina, until 7-15 business days after my baby id born. The total cost for them to become the legal parents of my baby girl is $18,000. Since they are giving me the gift of knowing my daughter will get the life she truly deserves I wanted to see if I could raise a little bit of money to help contribute to their expenses.
