The early signs of pregnancy can be stressful for anyone, but as we know, God always gives us the strength to face any difficult situation. Teenage pregnancy is a matter of serious concern for many of the countries dealing with high rates of pregnancies among children. Sex education is something that needs to be accepted by the school curriculum.
Kaleena discovered that she was pregnant at the age of 18. She was still in high school when she got the news of her pregnancy.
She had to make a very tough decision post that. She either could have raised the baby on her own or could have given it off for adoption.
She finally chose the option of giving the baby off for adoption and that was not at all an easy decision for her. She said that it would be unfair for the baby if it is raised by an inexperienced teenager.
She wanted to somehow stay in touch with her newborn baby. She thought that she can pump milk through her breasts and send it for the feeding of the baby. She used to pump for two hours every day or ship 80 pounds of milk to baby's new parents.
A family friend who used to babysit Kaleena when she was a kid agreed to Kaleena's request of adopting the baby very happily. Kaleena too was more than happy to have such good carers to her biological daughter.
She lost her only way to stay connected to her daughter when her daughter was no more in need of mother's milk. This made her extremely sad. So, Kaleena and the new parents decided to stay in regular touch on video chats and festive occasions. Also, Kaleena decided to donate the rest of her milk to a Milk Banks to help others.
