Mother records tearful video for son before giving him up for adoption

The baby boy now lives with a new family and Hannah couldn't be any happier with her decision

Hannah Mongie, 21, had made the toughest decision of her life when she was 18. And if you're wondering what the decision was? The young woman's decision has emerged on Facebook and has captured the attention of millions of people who cannot help themselves from becoming teary-eyed.

Precisely two years ago, Hannah had decided to place her new-born child for adoption. But the reason behind her resolve could make anyone cry a river.

At the time of her son Taggart's birth, she had recorded a heart-wrenching video for him to know in the future, why she had chosen to place him for adoption—she wanted Taggart to understand that she and his father had taken the adoption call only out of love for him.

"I made this video, so you know how much I love you," Hannah stated at the beginning of the video. "I wanted to tell you why I made the decision to place you with your family. Gosh, you’re so cute, you’re making this hard!” she is heard saying in the video.

Hannah had spent two days with her newborn son after his birth in March 2016 and had recorded the video message back then, which hit virality after it was shared on the Love What Matters Facebook page earlier this month.

"This video was created so that he would be able to look back and know that this decision was made purely out of love for him. He will never have to think that I ‘gave him up’ or that I did not love him. He will always be able to know that I loved him more than anyone else in this world," she tells her little one in the video. 

She pours her heart out to the baby, saying everything she’s felt at the moment in the hope of answering all the questions he may have in the years to come.

“Right now, is the last hour of those two days before I send you off to Brad and Emily and then you’re going to be their little boy,” she is heard telling him. “And I just want you to know that I really love you so much. More than I’ve ever loved any other human in the whole world.”
