On today's episode we are honored to have Melinda Payne, a 2 time Birth Mother and Lifestyle/Adoption blogger joining us back 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. BUT when she finds herself pregnant a second time within a year of placement and her abusive relationship escalated she knew that placement would be life changing, and saving.
FROM THE HOST:
We are so blessed by Melinda and her powerful story. I adore her more than she knows and I know she has been an incredible support to so many fellow Birth Mothers. Her maturity at such a young age is really impressive and she has moved forward into a beautiful marriage and family and open adoption. I know you will be touched by her strength and vulnerability. THANK YOU Melinda, we love and and are blessed by your voice.
