By donating her breast milk, Kaleena is able to still pay an active part in her daughter’s life.
Although a family friend adopted Kaleena’s daughter, she has ended up helping the adopted parents in raising the baby girl.
“I would trust her with my life,” Kaleena told Alaska Dispatch News of the adoptive mother.
“I would trust her with my baby. She will get quality love, parental guidance and a good education. She wouldn’t be able to get that with me.”
Kaleena says she was overcome with joy when her daughter was born, describing the moment as “the greatest feeling”.
She arranged an open adoption so that Kaleena could play an active role in her daughter’s upbringing.
