On today's episode we are honored to have Melinda Payne, a 2 time Birth Mother and Lifestyle/Adoption blogger join us on set.
Even though Melinda was in an unsafe relationship she was determined to beat the statistics. She was smart and and knew she could rise above. But even with the passion and drive that she carried at such a young age the pressures of such a huge decision weighed on her.
After education, prayer and as the abuse in her relationship continued she knew that adoption was going to be the best for her and her child. She shares a powerful message to young women about finding their worth outside of men and physical attraction, about saying NO and having the faith to fight for what you believe in.
FROM THE HOST:
I am so blessed to know Melinda. In the few short months that I started following her I knew that I wanted to get her voice out into the community. She is so smart and mature for her age and is a powerful role model for young women. Having experienced the trials and bullying that come with being pregnant at 16, she showed great class and respect as she decided to rise above. Adoption truly saved Melinda and we are so honored to watch her become an advocate for adoption and Birth Mothers everywhere.
You will be seeing more from her!
