Jane Phillips gave birth to Jennifer when she was a teenager. Jane was unaware of her pregnancy and when she was educated about it, one of her family asked her to Jennifer up for adoption. A family member had arranged the adoption through an agency in Pensacola because they believed she was too young to raise a child. Jennifer was adopted by a family from Idaho, and they lost touch ever since.
