Birth Mom Missions is intended as a place for all birth moms to come to share their stories and support each other, whether they had negative or positive adoption experiences. There are always discussions that anyone is encouraged to contribute to, or even start their own if there is something they want to address. While there are members who are at times rude and not supportive, there are always others who are kind and have helpful things to say. Despite negative members, Birth Mom Missions is itself is a great asset to birth moms who need a venue to express themselves and interact with other birth moms.

There are members who are rude at times. There could be better enforcement of courtesy and kindness, despite differing opinions and experiences.

I am a birth mother and I DO think it is important to show the good and the bad in adoption. This is a comprehensive site that allows those mothers who have had good experiences feel welcome, among those that understand. Kudos to any woman who is strong enough to share her story and do it in an honest way!

I was very impressed with this organizations website and information they had collected about the psychological well being of child and mother and the possibilities for improvement in adoption practices. I have yet to find a birth mother support group that is so expansive in their knowledge over so many issues. As soon as you think you have the missions point of view down, you find another link to information coming from yet another different perspective. I wish them luck and look forward to collaborating with them on new birth mother research that will prove very significant to the adoption community.

I am an adopted child myself, but I never had the chance to meet my birth mother before she passed away. I have received a type of closure (I never expected) just by simply talking with a few of these women. They want all those adopted to know the truth.

I wasn't doing well after my adoption. I heard about this mission and so I contacted them. They helped me process the grief and I got to talk about things I needed to get out. I would still be alone with all my fears about the adoption and no one to talk to. They are a continuing support system for me. Some of the reviews on here about them working for a agency, are total lies. I know because I have witnessed they do not push adoption or non- adoption. They were there to help me AFTER my adoption.

Help them raise money, to stay afloat... It's just a few girls, with day jobs, that devote their free time to help others

birth mothers, Real, honest and nice. Non-judgemental and open to learning from other women too.

Change the face of adoption

Ways to make it better...

I lived nearby or could visit.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Angry birth mothers from the baby scoop era that want an end to all things adoption related. They have stated their goal is "to ruin the mission" even though they don't understand what it is.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank you

While this non profit agency states it supports women, there is no indication of it. Instead, the people who run it are attempting to plaster their christianity and pro-adoption, anti-abortion politics all over facebook and the internet. Don't be fooled, and do the research.

This group is nothing more than a front for the adoption agencies and lawyers. It is not their mission to help Natural Mothers, but rather to convince mother's to surrender their babies. I find it disgusting beyond words that this happens in this day and age, when there is so much help available to young mother's. If you really want to help how about lending some real support so young women can keep their babies. Adoption is a permanent solution to a temporary problem!

Supporting a woman before and during pregnancy is an admirable goal. However this group does not do this. What this group does do is participate in the coercion and manipulation of vulnerable mothers to the end goal of providing a healthy infant for adoption. I believe the decision to place an infant for adoption cannot be made until six months after birth, just as any life decision must wait until six months after the death of a loved one. I would like to give a rating of Fail. That option is not available.

This group coerces mothers to surrender their babies and does not offer support to keep and raise her child. The overall rating I give this group is a 0 but there is not option for 0.

This organization should never get this kind of money as it will use it to hurt mothers and children.

it did not exist.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of education of its founder and lack of resources offered to mothers to keep and raise their babies.
