Right Choice


“Some Call It Kidnapping” [July 29, City Weekly] was an interesting read for me. I had a child as a teenager and did not inform the father about placing his child up for adoption. The father decided to verbally and physically abuse me during my pregnancy. I felt it necessary not to include him on the birth certificate and did not inform him of my choice to give my child up for adoption.

I felt I made the right choice by placing this child in a home where she would never be abused or have to face years of court disputes and custody battles. I am glad that the state and this current law enabled me to protect a child.
