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.
