Each week, we learn more and more about Teen Mom 2 newcomer, Briana DeJesus. The reality star just joined the cast this season, but she's arguably endured more drama than many of the other girls combined.
Throughout her pregnancy, Bri debated whether or not to place her daughter for adoption — after finding out her baby daddy, Luis Miguel, cheated on her — and last night, fans realized just how close the 23-year-old was to following through. Get to know all about Heart of Adoptions below — the agency Briana used to educate herself on the best possible decision for baby Stella.
What is Heart of Adoptions, Inc.?
According to their website, "Our primary mission is to create families through adoption. However, we take this one step further by ensuring that all our clients: expectant parents, their children, and hopeful adoptive families, are treated as individuals with unique needs, situations, and emotions. We believe in flexibility, respect, and confidentiality."
Luis was never on board with the adoption, which made their mission especially important to Briana. During the episode, she met with a counselor who told her that she would be willing to meet with Luis to make sure he felt like he was a part of the decision process.
Where are they located?
Heart of Adoptions is located in cities throughout Florida including: Tampa, Naples, and Orlando.
What services to they provide?
In addition to helping children find their forever homes, the agency also provides a variety of resources for mothers and their families. They offer breastfeeding classes, support groups, adoption books, financial aid, and more.
As we now know, Briana chose to keep her daughter, though it doesn't seem like Luis is in the picture — especially after she went on a recent social media rant about him! That being said, we do know the reality star is already the best mama to Nova, 5, — who she shares with ex Devoin Austin — so we can only imagine how loved Stella is!
Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
