We believe that adoption is not the end, but the beginning of a beautiful and often difficult journey. We want to share your greatest wishes as a way to encourage birth moms during what has the potential to be a difficult season.
The Courage Behind Telling Your Story
It takes an immense amount of courage for someone to share their personal story with the world. In honor of National Adoption Month, we honored to share three very courageous stories. Sarah, Adrianne, and Hannah are three birth moms who have all taken a very brave step in sharing their powerful, honest story of their adoption experience.
Relive the night - A Brave New City
Last Thursday, October 15th, we celebrated "A Brave New City" with over 200 new and old friends in Dallas, Texas. Watch this short video to get a glimpse of what the night entailed. A big thanks to all those who attended plus our amazing event sponsors, special guests, volunteers, and honorary speaker. We couldn't have done it without each of you.
When Adrianne found out she was pregnant she thought her life was over. She never imagined adoption being an option for her. It wasn't until her mom placed a packet of information about adoption on her bed that she realized the pros of adoption actually outweighed the cons. Watch as she shares with us how she chose parents for her son, where this relationship is today, and talks more about those who helped her along the way.
