Lori Wickelhaus is a 17-year-old girl from Fort Thomas, Kentucky who becomes pregnant by her then-boyfriend Cory Haskett.

Raised by adoptive parents, Lori contemplates on whether or not she wants to keep the baby & feels pressure from all sides: her parents are pressuring her to give the child up for adoption, while Cory & her friends want her to keep the baby.

Cory invites Lori to move in with him so they can raise the child together, and her friends make plans to throw her a baby shower, but both of these plans are met with resistance by Lori's parents.

Lori and her mother meet with a couple named Brian & Jen, who have already adopted a son from one of Lori's friends. At the last minute, the couple turns Lori away, stating that they don't feel that she is committed to adoption and that they don't have time to prepare for a newborn.

Lori and her parents meet with another couple and the decision is made for them to adopt the baby; they agree on the name Aidan.

On December 16, 2009, Lori gives birth to son Aidan Elliot Benson. When she tells Cory that she plans to give Aidan up for adoption, he states that he does not want her to make that decision.

When Aidan is two days old, an adoption ceremony is held and Lori leaves the hospital. Lori continues to see Aidan and his adoptive family on a regular basis.

Lori would later go on to have two more children with her ex-fiance, Joey Amos: a daughter Rylynn Jo (born on October 22, 2013) and another son, Logan (born on October 3, 2014).
