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:

MY OPINION: I think this page and Brooke Bida are a scam. She parties, sleeps with different men all the time, has youtube videos of herself getting high, claimed she was being stalked by a guy in California, she needs help. NOT attention. Wherever that kid is, thank God she's not with her mother. Doubt seriously she was raped, probably what she told her creepy dentist dad. I find it strange she and her dad think they're superior but Brooke had to live at Edna Gladney home for unwed mothers. Strange how she says she was drugged up on Prozac, but has a perfect composite picture of the "rapist". I think she's a narcissist in it for attention and money, she is unemployed and 30 years old by the way. Wonder why her "Story of a Girl" got deleted? Lies, perhaps??

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

Many say they are pro-life and support human life in all forms from conception to death and beyond. The birth mothers not only say they are pro-life, they prove it with tremendous belief and sacrifice. This group validates that reality. To all birth moms, adopted children and adopted parents, may God bless you and keep you until some fine day when you all meet again. Ted

I wrote this message to someone I had friended on Facebook a while ago. I did not know her, but as an adoptive parent I felt a connection to her. She shared so much of her life to another family by being a birth mom. I stumbled upon this site and feel it is great that there is a place that supports birth moms for all they go through.
Below is the email I wrote:
"I have been your friend for awhile now on FB and have looked at your website as well. This might sound strange, but I want to thank you on behalf of the parents who adopted your child for the brave choice you made.

We recently adopted a little girl and she is such a huge blessing to our family! I think about the birth mother all of the time and the huge sacrifice she made when making this choice for her daughter. At this time she does not want any contact with our family and I have no way of thanking her. So, I thought I would pass it onto you instead.

You have given a gift that is bigger than words, bigger than any deed could be done to repay you. On behalf of the family who adopted your child, whoever they are, thank you!

You are in are prayers!"

I just want to say how grateful I am that this group is here. I have been searching for a little over a year now for something like this, and finally I've found it. I have been a birth mom for 14 months now and not a day goes by that seems to get easier for me. I constantly feel like I have to explain my reasoning for my adoption to family, friends, and even complete strangers. I am at the point now where I don't feel comfortable even talking about my little girl to anyone. I just bottle everything up, which I know is not healthy, but it just seems easier than dealing with the judgment and hurtful things people say once they know. I am in a semi open adoption, and my daughter's AP are amazing wonderful people, but when I try to tell people about them they just scold me and call me naive and say things along the lines of, "Oh well one day they will just stop talking to you, I'm sure of it." I just want my family, friends and anyone who knows my situation to appreciate the fact that I have feelings too and I did not enter into the adoption because I didn't want to raise my daughter, I did it for her, because I loved her more than I loved myself. Is this a common thing for birth moms to experience, constant negativity from people who are supposed to be supportive?

I have been looking for a place to just be able to talk about my experiences without any one judging me for my decision. Birth Mother Missions is a great place as I can tell my story to others who have been through the same thing, or to adoptive parents who have a child or are waiting for one to be placed, and to women who haven't made the decision yet but are considering it. While my story has a bittersweet ending in that my son passed away after we met, I am thankful I have a place to go to talk rather than just keep this all bottled in. Thank you Birth Mom Missions.

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!

Finding kindred mothers who are willing to share and help others feel not so alone.

keep doing what you are doing, so many need to have this kind of support.

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.

I have experienced the 'support' of other organizations with the same goal.
