Finding Mo [7.5.2011]

In May, Lindaleigh Irvin-Portner came on the program to tell her story. She became pregnant as a teenager and her mother sent her to a home for "wayward girls" to deliver her baby, Monique. Soon after, the baby was taken away. Lindaleigh says it was not her intention to give her daughter up for adoption, and she has never stopped looking for her. A listener to The Story heard Lindaleigh on the radio, and there’s been an intriguing development. Also in this episode: Delsie Bailey became pregnant with her daughter Faith while she was in high school. She's now a rising college junior, raising her daughter with her parents and committed to making sure that other high school girls get sex education.
