Mother and daughter both face adoption, choose differently

Local mother and daughter, Mary and Jennifer Thomas, both deal with the idea of adoption. Mary Thomas, at the age of 14, discovers she is pregnant and is too young to afford her child so she gives him up for adoption to a family that she has not and is never allowed to meet. Nearly 30 years later her youngest daughter, Jennifer, discovers that she is pregnant. Jennifer is faced with the idea of adoption, but after seeing what her mom went through she realizes she cannot go through with it. Now Jennifer and her son Samuel both live with her mother Mary who is helping her to raise her son.  Report by Kimberly Bradford.

Jennifer Thomas rocks her son, who she almost gave up for adoption, to sleep.
