An exceptionally strong woman once said “Giving birth does not make you a mother.. Just as placing a child for adoption does not make you less of one.” Many people believe that adoption is a sign of a birth mother “giving up” but in reality, this is far from the truth.
There was a time when adoption meant making a painful decision without any promise of a positive outcome. Thankfully, we have came a long way since then and technology has evolved to make the adoption process safer than ever. Birth mothers in today’s world stay connected with their babies as they grow up with photos, letters and sometimes even visits and phone calls. They get to see first hand how their child is doing and most importantly, they can make sure that their child is with a family that loves them.
