The amazing Antonnette Andruzzi with her twins Vincent and Gabriella (22 months). She is also mother to Giavonna (21) and Richard (20). Antonnette became pregnant for the first time at 18 and was at the time leaving an abusive relationship. She found herself homeless and decided the best thing for her baby girl was to place her for adoption. She chose a family from her church and placed Giavonna for open adoption. She has been able to receive updates as to how she's doing and is hoping that some day her first daughter will want to reconnect with her. Her son Richard was born about a year later and was an only child until the twins were born nearly 18 years later. All of Antonnette's pregnancies have been healthy and without complication and she's had natural deliveries. She carried her twins to term and they were born vaginally 15 minutes apart. She's also been able to successfully breastfeed her three youngest. Antonnette has never openly talked about her daughter's adoption and said it wasn't until her youngest babies were born that all of the feelings she'd been holding in rose to the surface and needed to be addressed. She's hoping that sharing her story will not only help her heal but help others who can identify with her journey through motherhood.
