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 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.
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.
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)
