Hi, I just found this website, on a whim I googled birthparent support groups.   We (my husband and I) gave our daughter up because we  were 16, in high school and not married at the time.  It was such a hard decision.  I come from a small town and most girls that got pregnant kept their babies.  I just didn't think I could give her the things in life that she needed.  I was afraid that I would resent her, and she deserved better than that.  DH and I had a very hard time, his family wanted to keep her and mine wanted her to have a more stable situation, his mother was very sick and they were already raising their niece.  We did an open adoption and picked out parents that we wanted her to have.  We have a fairly good relationship with her father and her, but her mother seems a bit threatened by me.  Her parents divorced when she was young.  I have recently told my extented family about her.  My father was thrilled and has really been keeping in touch with them.
