Last year in celebration of Mother’s Day and Birth Mother’s Day we asked adoptive families how they honor their children’s birth parents on these special days. A common sentiment was that birth mothers should be celebrated all the time, not just on one day of the year! Families seemed to agree that the best way to honor their children’s birth mothers was by talking about them “all the time,” and that, as one family put it, “While we will most certainly think about the women who are such a huge part of who our children are on Birth Parent’s Day, we try to remember that there are 364 additional days in the year!”
At Adoptions Together, we agree with these families that birth parents deserve our appreciation every day. If you’ve visited this blog before, you may have noticed that it looks a little bit different, and that’s because we’ve decided to revamp it and really make it a priority as a way of supporting you, the birth mothers we care about. It can be difficult for birth parents to find support in the days, weeks, and years after choosing adoption, so providing content that is helpful and interesting to you is part of how we’d like to show our appreciation for you today and every day.
