BraveLove Birth Mom Dinners

For Birth Moms Only: You're Invited

On Wednesday, November 1st, BraveLove is hosting 7 birth mom dinners all on the same night in these different cities.

--- Sorry! Registration is closed. ---

What are the dinners like?

The night is simple - it's about enjoying a meal together and connecting with another birth mom so you know that you're not alone in this adoption journey. There's no pressure to share your adoption story. No pressure to do anything but show up and enjoy the evening.

Most of the dinners will be hosted by a birth mom. Some of the dinners will be out at restaurants, others will be hosted in people's homes. Therefore, space is limited so make sure to RSVP and save yourself a seat. 

BraveLove Birth Mom Dinners 2016

Can I bring a guest?

Yes, birth moms are encouraged to bring 1 guest of their choice.* We recommend you bring someone who has been supportive of you throughout your adoption journey. Maybe a sister, friend, parent or spouse. Also, no kids - please. 

*The Dallas dinner is birth moms only - no guests, sorry! 

How do I RSVP?

It's all online. If you're a birth mom who has placed a child for adoption and live in one of the cities listed above, then we'd love for you to consider coming to dinner. To RSVP, click on the city link above. That will take you to the page where you RSVP. We will follow up as it gets closer to confirm exact location.

Will you have dinners in other cities besides these? 

This fall we're hosting these dinners in these specific cities. But that doesn't mean if you live elsewhere, you can't have or host your own dinner. If anything, we would love to see more dinners pop up on this night - even if they aren't officially hosted by BraveLove. We encourage you to take this opportunity to gather the birth moms in your area on Wednesday, November 1st! It's as simple as connecting with another birth mom over a meal. If you do gather together (and feel comfortable), snap a photo and tag BraveLove on social media (@JoinBraveLove or #BraveLove) so we can show how we're all in this together.

I'm not a birth mom, but how can I help and support in some other way?

If you're not a birth mom but want to be a part of these dinners, then contact us to learn more about becoming a sponsor. Also, we welcome your financial support of BraveLove. To learn more about how BraveLove funds are used, click here.

Are there going to be more dinners later this year? 

Yes! Next spring there will be more dinners in other cities.

What do other birth moms say about the dinners? 

"I love BraveLove's dinners for birth mothers. I walk away feeling connected, treasured and loved. I have special memories and bonds from all the time I've spent being loved on by these special ladies." - Rachel

"We had such a great time in Houston!! Power to birthmothers everywhere. Tell your stories because one story can change a mind and many stories can change a generation." - Heather

"I love having the chance to meet new friends who have gone through the same thing as I have, without the pressures of a 'group therapy' setting. Without all that, I’m able to make these friends through more than just a birth mom connection." - Ana

"As women it is so important to just hold space for each other. The BraveLove dinner let us bond over our shared experience and just be at peace together. It was magic." - Stephanie

"The dinner I attended was beautiful, but in a vulnerable sort of way. I was among new birth moms like myself at the time, and veteran birth moms (including our host!) There is a strange sense of peace in being in a place where you know you are loved and accepted even though everyone in the room knows what you may keep secret from most people when you first meet. I felt like my decision had meaning, and I felt like I wasn't so alone." - Sophia
