"A Birthmother puts the needs of her child above the wants of her heart"
"A mother's love for her child is like no other love. To be able to put that feeling aside because you want the best for your child is the most unselfish thing I know."
-Natasha, American Adoptions Birth Mother
" I chose adoption for my baby not because I didn’t want her but because I love her."
-Sandra, American Adoptions Birth Mother
" If you love some one unconditionally and with your whole heart, than you will do what is best for them not you."
-Talitha, Birth Mother (placed twice)
" It is not hard to know what is best, it is just hard to overcome all of the emotions involved."
-Haley, American Adoptions Birth Mother
Today is birthmother's day. I'm so grateful for all birthmothers who make the selfless decision to place their children for adoption. Happy (birth) Mother's Day! xo
