Every year, more and more people are choosing to spending the eve of Mother’s Day–this upcoming Saturday–celebrating the Birthmothers in their lives. This day gives those who have been affected by the complex process of adoption the opportunity to acknowledge their roots and commemorate the mothers that carried them for those long nine months. It also brings awareness to our society of the many stories from which families around the world are sewn.
Whether you are planning to participate in “Birthmother’s Day” celebrations or not, be sure to pay tribute to the moms and birthmoms in your life. One great way to do this is by educating yourself and others about adoption and the heaps of love that come from all sides:
- Visit our pregnancy support and adoption websites.
- If you’re a birthmom, check out this local event.
- And if you know someone waiting to become a mom, encourage them and let them know you’re thinking about them!
