What Does it Mean to be a Birth Mother?
Changing the View: Birth Mothers
We’ve all heard the misconceptions about birth mothers, and it is time to turn the tide. We are here to focus on the truth and spread this message near and far that birth mothers are strong.
What does it mean to be a Birth Mother?
Being a birth mother means that there is love rooted at the heart of her adoption decision. The choice was weighed and measured, and the answer revealed the selflessness of a woman in selecting the best path towards a vibrant future for the child. The terminology, “give baby up for adoption” is not the true nature of her heart. She placed the child in a loving home with adoptive parents that she hand-selected to nurture and cherish the child that she brought into this world.
Unfortunately, this isn’t always the way the world views birth mothers; but what if we rewrote the narrative? What if we could stand together and shout it from the rooftops that #BirthMotherStrong is real and beautiful and bold. What if we spread that this important decision takes courage and strength? If we united in the endeavor, we could change the way the community and even the world viewed adoption.
