Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story the baby when she was about 1 month old. Ann said she would try. The next week would be very hard for Jackie because when the nurses would bring in the babies in to their mothers and Jackie didn't get her baby. In the dark of the night when Jackie would hear the babies cry she would always wonder if it was her baby that was crying She wanted so bad to go and hold her child close and say it's all right mommy's here. They knew they had to decide on a name. Before Ann left the hospital she would help Jackie settle on the name Joan for her baby. The six days and nights seemed to creep by so slowly. Finally it was time to go home. Jackie asked the nurse if she could see her baby before she left the hospital the nurse said she could. Jackie was very anxious as she walked over to the large window where you could see all the little blue and pink blankets telling if the baby was a boy or girl the nurse walked over with the little pink bundle and held her up for Jackie to see. Jackie would have felt so bad if her baby had been crying but, she wasn't she was yawning as if she needed her nap. Jackie could see her and Rob in the little face. She then went towards the exit door and out of the hospital. At home there was not one word said about the baby. Everything was kept hush, hush. In the sixties everyone would say what would the neighbors think. After a couple of weeks Jackie received a call from Ann to come to her office. Jackie's mom drove her to the welfare office. When Jackie walked in Ann handed her something it was a black and white photo of a little girl lying in a bassinet she was wearing a white dress. The little girl had big eyes like Jackie's. Jackie knew right away it was her little girl. Ann told her she looks like you but Jackie could see Rob also in the little face. Jackie thanked Ann and left with her precious picture. She sat in the backseat of the car and looked at her picture she then leaned over the front seat to show her mom who didn't utter a word when she saw it. Jackie would go back home and wait another six weeks before she would see the lawyer. She was working in a small eatery not really thinking about the time or days that passed very quickly. The day finally came when Ann called and said it was time for Jackie to see the lawyer. She boarded the bus to make her last trip to the Welfare office. Ann met her when she got off the bus. The lawyer's office was a couple of blocks down the street it was a beautiful day. Ann and Jackie chatted all the way. Finally they walked into the lawyer 's office. He was a very nice man and didn't pressure Jackie at all. He must have asked her at least six times are you sure this is what you want to do? Jackie wanted to scream at the lawyer no! This is not what I want to do this is what I have to do. He then asked her to sit at his desk to sign paper after paper. Everything was finally taken care of and Jackie and Ann made the walk back to the bus stop. The day wasn't as beautiful as it had been just a few hours before. Jackie said goodbye to Ann for the last time and boarded the bus for home. Jackie knew she would always think about the little girl that she signed away. Tweet
