Tips from Birthmoms to Women Considering Adoption

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 27, 2016

We saw a great article from The Huffington Post featuring experiences from real-life birth mothers, offering tips to women who are considering adoption for a child. We love to see validating and positive insights like these about adoption today.
