Birthmother’s day

Imagine having to give your child up for adoption and then getting a painful reminder of that fact every year in the form of Mother’s Day.

Some birthmother’s have decided to set aside the day before Mother’s Day to commemorate their experience.

It’s a day that celebrates women who chose to give life.

Laura de Jong who gave up her child for adoption 31 years ago has yet to hear from her child, even though it was an open adoption. This event is an opportunity for birthmothers to encourage each other while they wait to see if their children will seek contact.
