Danielle’s Story

My son’s dad had passed away before I even knew that I was pregnant. And that was really hard on me. You can’t raise a baby just on love, it’s more than that. I wanted him to have the best life possible. I financially could not support him. I went to go talk to my school social worker, she was the one who told me about St. Mary’s… because I told her how I wanted to do adoption. The (St. Mary’s) social worker made it so much easier for me. To me it didn’t really feel like a counseling session, to me it more felt like she was just getting to know me as a person. My mom came with me and we actually looked through thirteen books, I remember. And I came across Tim and Kerry, and instantly I felt a connection. And I knew that they were the perfect people. And that’s what made it so much easier. Just the knowing… you’re giving your child a family, you’re giving a family a child. I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done if I had never met St. Mary’s.
