Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate and honor all mothers. Often times, women who have made the decision to place their child for adoption are overlooked in their selfless act of love. These mother’s deserve recognition and admiration today and throughout the year.

Placing a child for adoption is never an easy decision, especially for women who face an unexpected pregnancy. They may be unsure of their ability to provide for a child, or many may not feel emotionally or financially ready to become a parent. Despite the challenges they face, these women choose to place their child for adoption, in the hope of providing them with a brighter future. This decision is oftentimes the first true parenting decision these mother’s make for their unborn child.


The decision to place a child for adoption is a true act of love. Birth mothers make the ultimate sacrifice, putting their child’s needs above their own desires. They ensure the pain of childbirth, only to say goodbye to their child shortly after. This decision takes immense courage, strength and selflessness.

This is why we honor our birth mothers on Mother’s Day! Birth mothers deserve our love, gratitude, and respect. Let’s take a moment and honor them on this special day and thank them for the love they have for their child.
