Nothing but great things to say about Birth Mom Missions. I'm an adoption attorney with 19 years in practice, adoptive father, younger brother to an adopted sister, extended family to a woman who chose abortion over adoption, and friend to many birth mothers and birth fathers. I'm a proponent of adoption. I'm a proponent of birth father rights. As of this morning, assisting in court with the adoption of a sibling group of four (triplets plus one), I've been involved with 1,013 adoptions. I have seen personally and professionally the great joy and happiness that accompanies adoption. Conversely, I've also witnessed the pain, heartache, grieving, and the healing of birth parents as they travel the difficult but rewarding road of adoption. I've seen many Facebook groups and non-profit organizations dedicated to adoption, and birth mother related issues. I'm particularly impressed with Birth Mom Missions. High praise for the tremendous grace and professionalism with which BMM endeavors to accomplish it's mission to serve the needs of all those involved with the adoption process. I've "lurked" on the sidelines for some time, observing the communications funneled through BMM, and only recently become more directly involved. I could no longer stand idly by and not give BMM the recognition it deserves for addressing difficult issues head on. I could no longer consider myself a "good man" in any sense if I continued to remain silent. Edmund Burke's famous quote: "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men [or women] to do nothing." I could do nothing no longer. Those who would oppose BMM in the pursuit of its honorable mission, while not overtly evil, and though otherwise well-meaning, misguided, and misinformed, should reconsider their motives, methods, and agenda. My faith in humanity is fortified knowing that organizations like Birth Mom Missions exist, and that they soldier on through all forms of adversity. Keep up the great work!
I love how we get a great variety of perspectives on the page. All 3 admins of page have such different stories and lives to share.
What I like most about the mission, is that we get the reality of birth mom's lives. None of us have exactly the same experience, but all of us have that same common bond I don't know how to describe...(just knowing what it means to place a child for adoption, I guess) That's something that few people will ever understand or experience in life.
I want to thank the 1 or 2 birthmoms that really keep the mission running. You do so much, and we all appreciate it! We each have such different experiences and lives post adoption, I think it helps a lot to see there is hope for the future (does for me at least). And my experience is just getting started, so it will be a interesting journey. I hope everyone feels represented or heard in some way on the page.
I value their experience. This mission means so much to me and I am truly so thankful to have it. That goes for the entire page too!
Thank you for everything.
