Heartwarming Adoption Story

This story is so touching and beautiful.

 

Every now and then, you hear a story that’s equal parts pain and joy, weakness and strength, fear and bravery, despair and hope.

The birth and adoption of Leo Doud, which came to light last week in a poignantly candid account written by Leo’s birth mom, is one such story.

A 25-year-old photojournalism student at the University of Iowa, Callie Mitchell chronicled her unplanned pregnancy, delivery and decision to give her baby up for adoption in heartbreaking detail and with gorgeous, moving photographs in the college newspaper, The Daily Iowan. The story gives articulate voice to someone we don’t often hear from in the adoption process: the birth mother. Click here to read the rest of this heartwarming story.
