Parenthood, whether birth or adoptive, is a journey.
FIA sends its love to all the amazing FIA alumni birth mothers with whom we have had the pleasure of getting to know and work with through the years, and we ask you to join us in celebrating birth mothers everywhere!
Growing up with adoption as part of one’s identity is a journey. And, no two journeys are alike. In the spirit of compassionate adoption, honoring birth mothers is important to all in the adoption circle: to first parents, to adoptive parents, and especially to children. You may have seen the quote, “when you honor the birth family, you honor the child.” Friends in Adoption (FIA) agrees! Children need to celebrate their roots and love from birth and adoptive families. While we are at it, it stands to reason that the spirit of open adoption means that adoptive parents honor the birth family in their hearts and minds every day of the year, not just on birth mother’s day!
Please do your part in educating others on showing kindness, respect and honor to those who have made the difficult decision, theirs alone to make, to lovingly place their child with adoptive parents.
