    When Anna was a teenager she gave away

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct. Is it correct to use the word "thing" in my sentence, meaning adoption?

    When Anna was a teenager, she gave away her daughter for adoption. At that time she didn't ponder much about it, but as she grew older, she could not forgive herself for doing such a cruel thing to her child.

    I'd say 'think' was more appropriate than 'ponder'.

    (She should tell herself that it was probably the best thing for her baby.)

    We usually "give up" a child for adoption.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
