Our mission is to change the perception of adoption through honest, informative, and hopeful communication that conveys the heroism and bravery a birth mother displays when she places her child with a loving family through adoption.
We understand that adoption is not for everyone. Ideally no one wants to separate mother from child. So often the brave act of placing a baby for adoption is viewed in a negative light, when in reality it is a selfless, difficult, and loving act a birth mother can make for her child. We aim to invite and empower women to choose adoption when faced with an unplanned pregnancy.
We’re a pro-adoption movement.
We’re not an adoption agency. We’re not a pregnancy resource center or a church ministry. We’re a national, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity organization headquartered in Dallas, Texas that exists to change the perception of adoption through honest, informative and hopeful communication that conveys the bravery of birth mothers. We believe birth mothers are heroes and adoption can be a beautiful thing.
The idea of BraveLove began with a small group of people working directly with a local pregnancy resource center in Dallas. They witnessed their clients weren’t considering adoption as an option when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. This observation was consistent with the National Council for Adoption’s Fact Book which states 2% of women in unplanned pregnancies choose adoption. BraveLove’s Board of Directors evolved and is currently comprised of men and women from across Texas who are working hard to use their talents to make an impact.
BraveLove is here to change the way our culture thinks about adoption so that it’s normalized as a common path for those in unplanned pregnancies. Through the creation and distribution of compelling media and messaging, we aim to show how adoption can be an amazing act of love and bravery.
