“My plan was simple. I would get married, have kids, and live happily ever after. However, life doesn’t always follow the path we plan for ourselves.”
When Jill Murphy became pregnant at the age of seventeen, she was faced with some difficult decisions. Unsure of how to be the mother she knew her child deserved, Murphy chose adoption for her baby.
Years later, after she married the man of her dreams, Murphy decided it was time to create the family she’d always imagined. The couple tried for years to get pregnant before being given the heartbreaking news that Murphy could no longer conceive. Her journey toward motherhood then took an unexpected turn: adoption.
Murphy is a birthmother who has reconnected with the child she chose adoption for. She also is an adoptive mother who is forever grateful to the women who made the difficult decision to choose adoption for their own babies. Above all, she is part of a family that is even better than any she could have imagined as a little girl.
“I am blessed, and this is my journey to motherhood.”
