Recently, Bachelor alum Michelle Money appeared in a promotional video and talked about her experience of placing a baby for adoption. When she was just 15 years old, she made a decision that she says was “not an easy one but it was the right one.”
For those who don’t watch The Bachelor, Money is a familiar face on the show – but this is the first time she has opened up publicly about her adoption journey. The story appeared in a video for skincare tool PMD and featured footage of teenaged Money holding her newborn son.
“When the moment came to say goodbye and hand him over to the social worker, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” she says.
Money is currently not in contact with her 19-year old son, but she hopes to reconnect with him someday in the future. She also has an 11-year old daughter named Brielle.
Since opening up about her adoption story, Michelle has received largely positive feedback online. Her response to the supportive messages can be found on her Facebook page.
