How to Survive Mother's Day When You've Chosen Adoption

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 10, 2019

On Mother’s Day, we honor the endless love that mothers have and recognize the sacrifices that they make for their children. For adoptive couples, Mother’s Day couldn't be celebrated without also recognizing their child's birth mother, who made the greatest sacrifice of all.

By choosing adoption, birth mothers not only gave their children life but also gave them a future full of opportunities through adoption. Through a birth mother's choice, many adoptive couples have had the opportunity to become parents.

That's why every year, the Saturday before Mother’s Day is celebrated nationally as Birth Mother’s Day. On this day, many adoptive parents will honor the women who helped make their families possible. Even though families in open adoptions honor this special holiday, this might be the first time you've ever heard of it.

Honoring You This Birth Mother’s Day

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 6, 2016

Did you know that there’s a holiday especially for birth mothers? Each year, the day before Mother’s Day is recognized as Birth Mother’s Day, honoring women who chose adoption for their child. Understandably, the day can bring up a wide range of emotions.

While we celebrate all moms for Mother's Day, the day before is set aside to honor and remember Birth Mothers. To all of the Birth Mothers: May you find comfort and peace-of-heart this weekend. You are truly PRECIOUS and so loved! From where we stand, we know how many adoptive families count a Birth Mother in their blessings. There are no perfect words to lift up the brave and beautiful women who lovingly choose adoption for a child, but we recognize you today.
