One of our clients called us to tell us about a young woman who had just given birth to a baby boy one week prior. She had tried to give him up to Social Services, but they couldn’t take him because she had no identification, and they couldn’t verify her parental rights or those of the father. This woman, 23 years old, was in one of the most difficult situations we had ever seen. No job, no family, no money, and an abusive boyfriend who had gotten her into prostitution and gambling.

Magdalena

In the spring of 2015, a woman who was 16 weeks pregnant came to our office in Skopje, having found out about us from a friend. She didn’t know what to do. By law, it was too late to have an abortion, but she was not in a situation where she could raise a child. Our director suggested adoption, and she agreed! This is very rare, because the idea of adoption in Macedonia is not well-accepted.

In August, she gave birth to a baby girl, and since there are no adoption agencies here, “Lydia” was able to help her at the hospital with the process of giving her child for adoption. Because she was given for adoption, we do not have a photo of Magdalena.
