Mission: Changing the Face of Adoption, Supporting Families, Honoring Motherhood, Cherishing Life, Loving KidsBirth Mom Missions is a nonprofit organization created and managed by actual birth mothers of adoption.
 We provide a much needed service to women who have placed their child for adoption. There is also an overlooked service to single pregnant woman (one that is pro-life and not on board with an adoption agency)  No matter what the result of a woman''s adoption decision or her opinion on it today, this is meant to be a place for her to come and know that she is loved and has a special place in our hearts.
The mission touches the lives of those adopted, adoptive parents, hopeful adoptive parents, pregnant woman at risk, and the unborn and other parts of society in ways yet to be seen.
 

A mother''s love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking,it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking.

Results: Changing the Face of Adoption, Supporting Families, Honoring Motherhood, Cherishing Life, Loving Kids We have saved many lives from abortion. And we have found a community of women who share similar experiences and are able to process and grieve the loss of adoption. Made many adoptive children aware they are loved by their first mother.
Target demographics: The mission touches the lives of those adopted, adoptive parents, hopeful adoptive parents, pregnant woman at risk, and the unborn and other parts of society in ways yet to be seen. (Options to birthmom: lifemom, firstmom, tummymom, etc...In actuality most birth moms of adoption don't really care what they are called by the adoptive family and others....as long as they are called.)

Hey Birth Moms! Check out and join Birth Mom Missions!

It is dif­fi­cult to gen­er­al­ize about the feel­ings or expe­ri­ences of all birth par­ents. Each has faced a unique expe­ri­ence and coped in his or her own way. A num­ber of birth par­ents have writ­ten per­sonal accounts of their expe­ri­ences in plac­ing their chil­dren for adop­tion; there are also a few research stud­ies of the expe­ri­ences of birth par­ents and the emo­tions that often linger long after the adop­tion. Cer­tain themes emerge in both types of lit­er­a­ture, includ­ing themes of loss, guilt, and res­o­lu­tion. As a frame­work for this dis­cus­sion, this fact­sheet explores the expe­ri­ences of birth par­ents by explor­ing some of these themes:

This group is well needed and I am thankful they are here so others like them can have a safe lace to go and talk about how we are feeling and get advice from others who have walked in their shoes. There is no discrimination of your choices, no matter why you chose adoption. All there are are caring woman who know the pain.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily mental health. Its good to vent and get out your emotions in a safe place.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

mainly it would be to get more financial support so they could continue to hand out gift baskets to birth moms, maybe help with scholarships for school and scholarships for face to face counseling.

Birth Mom Missions is a wonderful place for all birth moms to come to share their stories and support each other. We all need support, no matter when we placed or if we had negative or positive adoption experiences. And people who are going through there options need a place they can get information for people who have gone through it. I am happy I found Birth Mom Missions.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have a life now and am not depressed all the time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning that I'm not alone.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

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

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

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
