4 Things Birthmoms Want Adoptive Parents to Know

  1. Don’t make promises regarding contact during pregnancy (or anytime for that matter) that you are not certain you can keep. When you make promises and don’t keep them, it then causes us to question everything you promised us about how you’d raise our child.
  2. Please know that when we call our child “our child” on Facebook or in emails, we are not trying to undermine your role, we are simply acknowledging our relationship to our child.
  3. Contacting you, requesting visits or updates doesn’t mean we are trying to disrupt your lives or your family. We spent many sleepless nights making the decision to place our child with you and just want to be a part of our child’s life in some way.
  4. Photos and updates showing our child loved, happy, and healthy reaffirm that we made the right decision for them.
