This week, Miss Molly Anne Dutton was named Auburn’s 100th Homecoming Queen. In the wake of her victory, this young woman has captured hearts across the country, and she is surely changing how many view abortion and adoption.
The Story Behind the Crown
You see, Molly Anne is not your average homecoming queen. Certainly, she displays the beauty and personality of her new title, but it is her story that sets her apart.
22 years ago, Molly Anne’s birthmother was faced with a grave decision- abort your child or get a divorce. Molly Anne’s birthmother was married at the time; however, she had been the victim of a sexual assault. Rather than abort her child, she courageously traveled from California to Alabama, where she then placed Molly Anne for adoption. Molly Anne’s parents were on the board of Lifeline Children’s Services, and they adopted Molly Anne.
Advocating for Pregnancy Resources
Thanks to the courage of her birthmother and the compassion of her adoptive parents, Molly Anne is here today. Molly Anne’s story is a joyful celebration of life, love, and sacrifice, and she is sharing her story to educate and encourage others. Through her testimony, Molly Anne is inspiring young women to see beyond their circumstances and to reach out for support and resources.
