The Millennial Mom
When a teenager in Chicago had an unwanted pregnancy, she was ready to put her baby in the foster care system. Instead, that baby -- Dimitra Trejo -- was adopted by a family friend and came of age in South Texas.

And her experiences with her birth mother and adoptive mother have shaped how she will raise her son.
