What Led Me To Adoption
I have a vivid memory from when I was 10-12 years old, ironing family laundry and at the same time playing being pregnant with a sweater stuck up under my shirt. I knew from an early age I wanted to have children. At 14-16 years old, I started to be treated for amenorrhea (absence of menstrual period). I was treated by various doctors with the message that it will be hard for me to get pregnant. When my nine-year relationship ended, it put a pause on my exploring how to become a mother. It took me some time to come to terms with pursuing this dream as a single parent.
