What do people think about a birth mother?

Adoption is so misunderstood. Things have change not only in the last 25 years but also even in the last 5 years. Ten things I would like to share with everyone about being a birth mom is just to show the world an alternate view.

I’m not selfish for placing my baby for adoption, the choice I made was selfless.

People assume birth moms give away their baby, we make a plan for our baby, and we PLACE our baby for adoption.

I’m not just a birth mom, I am a mom! I carried, nurtured and love my child.

It takes the most up-most strength to make the choice I made, support me, don’t put me down.

I picked my son’s family and they love him, me, and my other children unconditionally.

It never gets easier, there is no amount of time that will take away my pain, however, seeing him and getting pictures reminds me I made the best choice.

I will never be able to describe exactly how I feel but I can share my story.

My sons’ mother and I share a bond just as strong as blood.

There is proper adoption language. I placed my child. I never “gave him away”.

Adoption is beautiful and I embrace it every day as a birth mom, as a mom, as a woman, as a person who made the choice to release my son from my hands but never from my heart.
