Episode 23: Finding Strength from Within | Latoya's Adoption Story
This week on Birth Mothers Amplified we are joined by Latoya, a birth mother of 16 years. Latoya found herself in an unplanned pregnancy at the age of 18 her senior year of high school. She had a son she was already raising at that point and was faced with making the decision as to how she would proceed with this pregnancy. Latoya initially considered abortion before she was informed how far along she already was. She shares how her experience at the abortion clinic and learning this information changed her mind and encouraged her to look for more options. Latoya courageously shares her story and the difficult decisions that led her to choosing adoption. Here is how Latoya describes her adoption journey in her own words: "There are those who viewed my decision to be a birth mother as selfish, but in fact this journey has been the true definition of selflessness. No longer do I walk this path in shame or embarrassment. For being a birth mother requires strength and grit, and greater than these, it requires love." Latoya has four more children, between the ages of 19 and 2 and is also in nursing school! She is working on starting a non-profit organization to help young girls in crisis situations. She is an incredible woman and we hope you take the time to listen to her episode! Disclaimer: the audio quality on this episode is not great.

Most weeks they are joined by one or more birth mother guests to talk about adoption topics.  Birth Mothers Amplified thrives on empowering the women who make adoptions possible and allowing birth parents to speak their truths and share their stories authentically. Katie's story has always been about adoption. Since she grew up as an adoptee in a closed adoption, she wrestled a lot with identity and worth. Her parents have always been supportive, but something deeply rooted in Katie couldn’t settle down. Katie refers to herself as rebellious, letting others define her worth, and hurting. However, she was completely unaware that this was all from trauma due to loss and relinquishment. She always wondered about her birth family growing up, but didn’t have the money to unseal records through the agency at 18-early 20’s. Due to this, she decided to put a pin in her search for a while and ended up facing two unplanned pregnancies during that time frame. Her parents adopted her son and after facing her second unplanned pregnancy, Katie chose an agency the second time. Her story is complex, deep, and will give a perspective on what it is like to be an adoptee and a birth mother of two.  Disclaimer:      The Birth Mothers Amplified hosts are not licensed medical, legal, or counseling professionals.
