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:

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

Described above.

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

Have an increased measure of awareness for the rights, feelings, and concerns of biological fathers.

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.

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

Hearing all the different perspectives ad opinions of birth mothers.

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 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.

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

the damaging advise the moderators give adopted people and mothers.

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

disband it.

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

exposing it for the lies and deceit it spreads.

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

liers and uninformed.

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

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

Ways to make it better...

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.

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

Thank you Hanne. I appreciate your slander and lies. I think we should "unfriend on facebook" how about that? As for the comment goes. Check out out mission for yourself. This women are birth mothers to. They happen to be bitter, but the deserve to be just like I and other mothers deserve to feel how we feel. Maybe we just hide our bitterness for the opposition, not for women we respect(ed)
