In season one of Oxygen’s I’m Having Their Baby, fans followed the stories of 12 young women who struggled with unplanned pregnancies and the decision of whether or not to place their baby in the hands of another family.The hour-long docu-series provided an intimate and emotional look at adoption by telling the too-often untold story through the eyes of the birth mother.

The personal stories shared by these women are heart wrenching, and I easily felt myself drawn into their stories. As a mom to two girls, I cannot imagine the overwhelming decision to do what each of these moms believed to be right for their child – to give up that child to be raised by another family.

Following the story of these young girls provides a different perspective to the adoption process. In an open and candid forum, we see the impact this decision makes on the girls, the families and their friends. It also gave me a new appreciation for the struggle that accompanies such a decision.

A year or more has passed since the moms in season one gave up their babies and now Oxygen is sharing a web series that follows up with some of the families featured in season one. Two of these webisodes are below. “I’m Having Their Baby: Raising Nayamah” catches up with mom Jamie and baby Nayamah and “I’m Having Their Baby: Raising Vivienne” catches up with mom Mercedes and baby Vivienne. It is really remarkable to watch the follow up story of these families to see the birth mom’s strength and resolve that they have made the right decision for their baby. It is also interesting to see that both of these families have built a loving relationship between the birth family and adoptive family. I actually watched the follow up series before seeing the original stories of these two moms, and after seeing the follow up felt compelled to watch the original episode.

Get ready for season two by watching both webispodes below. (Don’t worry, they are doing great!)
