LAKE FOREST, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Adoption Network Law Center, a California law corporation that supports Birth Mothers nationwide facing unplanned pregnancies, is "adopting" a Birth Mother, Mariella, and her family for the holidays. This year, Holiday Inn® Irvine South - Irvine Spectrum partnered with ANLC by providing Mariella and her family with a place to stay while they visited their ANLC family.
"Adoption is a decision that needs to be honored and respected. Adoption Network Law Center wanted to recognize one of our courageous Birth Mothers this holiday season." stated Kristin A.F. Yellin, Chief Counsel of Adoption Network Law Center. "We thank Holiday Inn® – Irvine Spectrum for partnering with us in honoring Mariella and her family".
Adoption Network Law Center reviews stories shared by Birth Mothers of what led them to adoption and this year, ANLC wanted to show Mariella and her family how much their story touched the hearts of the ANLC family. This past year, Mariella and her husband made the selfless decision to create an adoption plan for their third child, a full sibling to their two older children, one of whom has special needs. Mariella and her husband could not provide for a third child and as difficult as it was, knew that adoption was the right choice for their unborn daughter and their family.
"A Birth Mother's decision to choose adoption for her baby brings hopeful Adopting Parents the greatest joy, but is one of the most difficult decisions of her life," stated Kristin A.F. Yellin. "ANLC is honored and grateful to Mariella and her husband for trusting ANLC to help them with their adoption plan."
The Holiday Inn® Irvine South – Irvine Spectrum's staff was touched by Mariella and her family's adoption story and graciously opened up their hotel to welcome the family. This is the 7th year in a row that the Adoption Network Law Center family has come together during the holiday to show love and support to women and children in need.
Adoption Network Law Center is not an adoption agency, but the largest law center in the U.S. supporting Birth Mothers and helping hopeful Adopting Parents adopt a newborn. For more information, please visit adoptionnetwork.com
