I am just an average birth mother. All of our stories are different. The one thing that always remains the same though is how much we love our child we placed that day. I was raped, but that had nothing to do with why I placed her. I would of LOVED to keep her! She needed a daddy, in my opinion. Adoption is great when it is done right. Many times it is messed up due to the agency getting too involved or other reason. We are here to tell the truth and help future women in our situation. Join us at: http://birthmommission.com

Birth Mom Missions is a nonprofit organization created and managed by actual birth mothers of adoption. We provide a much needed (and often overlooked) service to women who have placed their child through adoption.
We stress the birth mother aspect to our mission, because we feel it is what makes us a unique organization and allows us to truly "tell it like it is" to women just like ourselves. Unfortunately we missed out on a birth mom mentor but we saw the need for this. We can think of no greater satisfaction than to help women in the future that experience an unexpected or crisis pregnancy and choose life. We are dedicated to providing nonjudgmental assistance to any woman facing an unplanned pregnancy and guidance for those who choose to become birth mothers. We do not "promote adoption but we do promote life. The decision on adoption vs. parenting yourself should be purely based on what is in the child's best interest.
(Options to birthmom: lifemom, firstmom, tummymom, etc...In actuality most birth moms of adoption don't really care what they are called by the adoptive family and others....as long as they are called.
