First, watch this . . .
Unplanned pregnancies happen and every person's story is different, personal and their own. As you watched the video, we hope it expanded your perspective and helped you recognize that we've all been impacted, either directly or indirectly, by the brave love of a birth mother who wanted the best for her child and chose adoption.
It takes a lot of humility, sacrifice and courage to choose adoption when confronted by an unplanned pregnancy. A woman’s decision to place for adoption is not easy and does not mean she did not want or love her child. But sometimes the world says otherwise.
. . .then send a word of encouragement.
Will you encourage a birth mom by sending a positive message her way? It will take only a second for you to fill out this form. Your words could make someone’s day or even change a life.
We are forever grateful for our little family all because one person was brave and selfless. xoxo from Colorado.
You are amazing. Thank you for helping create a family, for fulfilling someone’s dream of a child, for choosing life. You are special.
My husband and I are parents to 8-month-old twins, whom we adopted at birth. Their birth mother’s decision to place her son and daughter with us is the greatest gift of our lives. We love her deeply and consider her our friend and hero!!
I hope you feel loved and treasured by people in your life. Thank you for the Brave Love you have shown by placing your child in the arms of another. God bless you. Happy Mother’s Day.

Every May 2 we celebrate my brother Josh’s arrival in our family. We adopted him as an infant in 1972. We have grown so much as a family and we are different, richer, more compassionate because he came to us. We learned a lot about racial issues and inequities, prejudice, as well as how we are all the same inside. Mostly, we just love him as he is and he loves us as we are. One time my dad and my brother were somewhere and had a weird experience with a service worker and my dad, without a moment’s thought, said “Well, blood’s thicker than water.” Josh said “Dad, did you hear what you just said?” He is family, he is blood, we are grateful. I hope you can find peace with yourself. Your child will be loved!
