What is a Birth Mom Like?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on November 19, 2015

Here's a question we recently were asked by a couple thinking about adopting a baby through Lifetime:

"We're nervous about talking with a birth mom on the phone. What are they like? What should we expect? How do we talk to her?"

Hear Adoption Expert Mardie Caldwell's answer in this short video:

In the video, Mardie shares that a great way to learn about birth mothers is to consider reading her book, So I Was Thinking About Adoption. Inside the short book are stories from birth mothers and information for them. By reading the book, you can put yourself in the shoes of a birth mom and have empathy and understanding of what she's going through. It'll make you a better adoptive parent in the long run, by realizing how difficult the decision of adoption is for her. It will help you to have a more successful adoption!
