hear about adoption in a birth mom's wordsWhen you’re not sure if adoption is right for you, what can help is hearing from someone who’s been where you are. Someone who’s been in your shoes, “been there, done that,” you know? Today, we’re going to share about adoption with you, from a birth mom’s point-of-view, in a birth mom’s words.
 
Here are some comments and emails from Lifetime birth mothers, sharing their stories of making an adoption plan for their baby, and their hopes for the future…all names and identifying info have been removed for privacy.
 
“It makes me so happy to see the adoptive mom I picked with my son. She’s such a good mom. I’d never ever change my decision to do adoption. He’s thriving and very smart. Sometimes I think about the ways I could have made it work, but in my heart I know I did the best thing I could for him. He’s got the world at his fingertips, and I’d never have been able to give him that. If not for Lifetime and his adoptive family, I think I’d have been a hot mess.”
 
“This is definitely the most difficult thing that I’ve ever done. But, my daughter will be surrounded by so much love and affection by her adoptive family. I’m so blessed to have peace of mind that she’ll be well provided for and taken care of. Working with lifetime has been nothing short of amazing…thank you again for everything!”
 
“Choosing adoption for my son is totally the best decision I’ve ever made. I gave up so much for that little guy: my senior year, my boyfriend, my body…I could go on. But I’ll never regret choosing to endure the 9 months it took to give my baby to a loving couple who can’t have children on their own. Knowing that I gave life to a couple who couldn’t make it themselves makes me thrilled. All of us have something to be grateful for. For me, it’s the ability to give my son a better life, and to help create a new family.”
