I mentioned a few weeks ago that it was time for the second season of I’m Having Their Baby on Oxygen. The second season will premiere tonight June 12th at 10/9c and I’m excited to see what is in store. If you missed the first season or are just hearing about this show let me give you a little background.
I’m Having Their Baby Synopsis
This is a documentary style show that gives you, the viewer, a peek into the world of adoption. You will see the emotional decision that each birth mother makes as she decides what is best for her child. Each story is a personal journey through an unplanned pregnancy, the adoption process, and the final decision on whether to place their child with another family. Season two will delve deeper into the lives of the birth mothers entering the adoption process.
The women featured on the show had already sought out an adoption agency and had made the choice to pursue adoption for their unborn child when they were approached to participate in the show. All of the birth mothers wanted to share their story openly and honestly. I myself have an adoption story and don’t mind sharing it with you. Mine does not include an emotional decision by a birth mother but more of a decision of a birth father.
My Adoption Story
My mother had me at a very young age, just out of high school, definitely an unplanned pregnancy. I can’t pretend to know what transpired with my birth father but I do know that my mother met “my father” and eventually he officially adopted me. He has been and will always be my father, blood or not. After my youngest son was born I took the initiative to locate my birth father and send him a letter. I did not want to intrude on his life but wanted to let him know I had grown up well and had loving parents. Since the writing of that letter I have met my birth father when he and his wife visited Florida and it was nice to put a face with a name. He has two children which means I have two half siblings. However my heart is with the family that raised me and though I welcome any communication for the most part we live our own lives.
Each adoption story is different, with no two alike. Adoption is not an easy decision for any parent and I can only imagine the emotions attached. I think adoption is a beautiful gift that can be given to those that are unable to have children. I’m looking forward to the second season of I’m Having Their Baby and be witness to just such a gift.
In my first post I encouraged you to watch the web series and gave away a $50 Visa Gift Card. The winner was selected randomly and I’m excited to announce the winner was:
