Jessica Hannah Bowman
The mother of a 5-month-old with severe medical problems was thinking of putting her daughter, Gabrielle, up for adoption. Mostly, though, she wanted to talk to a counselor. She contacted Adoptions by Choice which immediately made her sign consent forms and made her handed over her child. When Bowman returned hours later to retrieve Gabrielle, whom she says she never really wanted to give up, adoption officials told her it was too late. Seven days later, ABC returned the child to Bowman.
