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!
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.
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.
The fb page is awsome..B-moms! I get to see the other side..when my daughter was born, it wasn't oh what a beautiful girl, it was ' why? how?' I understand the why and how..but the life without...omg..you are all so much braver than me! you are SO brave! My teacher is a b-mom, a women I work with is an adoptee & a birth mom..you are awsome! and for all the kids out there..
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.
