Back in July of last year, I introduced you to a new series called I’m having their Baby on Oxygen. Just in case you missed it, the show is about the world of adoption and seeing the side of the birth mother. This side of the story isn’t told very often but needed to be told. Each episode follows 2 pregnant women who have made the choice to place their babies for adoption, and are dealing with the life changing decisions that follow. I had been able to watch a couple of the episodes from last season and was very interested to know about some of these mothers and how they got through this difficult decision in their lives. Watching the episodes helped me feel connected to the families and helped me understand what a difficult process it actually is to give up your child for adoption.
The new season starts Wednesday June 12 at 10pm ET/PT and dives deeper into the lives of birth mothers entering the adoption process and in some cases, you can hear from the adoptive parent. While we wait for the new season to start, Oxygen had a web series called I’m having Their Baby: Raising baby. It reconnects you to season one families and gives you an update from both the birth mom and the adoptive families since the episode aired. It personally helps me keep connected to the families I met watching the first season and I’m always willing to see how much the babies have grown. If you didn’t know, I love babies. Watch one of the webisodes, I’m Having Their Baby: Raising Nayamah below to revisit Mercedes’ story from season one:
Join me in watching the first season and the web series before the season two premiere starts on June 12th. You can watch these and a sneak peak of season 2 on www.oxygen.com/baby. Let me know what you think about the webisode and what you expect from the new season… comment on the webisode for your chance to win a $50.00 gift card. I’ll announce the winner on 6/12!
