Birthmom Chit Chat

I am so extatic that this forum was started. It brings me to tears, alot because I am a birthmom, and I know no one who knows my feelings and pain. To have this forum to have that support, and just having people to talk to... means alot!!!
Let me hear your stories, your feelings, quesitons, concerns. I am very open about my adoption. I would love to share experiences and feelings!!

I am not a birthmom, but I just wanted to say thank you and I am sorry for the pain you have to go through I can not even imagine although I try. Thank you for loving your baby so much to carry him/her and give him life in a country where ending his/her life would have been so easy.
My son was abandoned when he was only four weeks old and I have NO idea the circumstances in those first four weeks...but I can only imagine the pain behind them.
Bless you for what you did in giving him/her life. From an adoptive mom: you are NOT forgotten although i would imagine it feels like it at times. I hope you stay on this forum to answer question from adoptive moms including what you hope your bio child is being told about you.

Re: Birthmom Chit Chat

I am a birthmom to 1, as well as a bio mom to 4 and adoptive mom to 3. Its been 14 years and I'm incredibly private about that part of my life. It is an open adoption and I do remain in contact with her and her family. I just find few outside of birthmoms under the raw and permenant pain of grieving a child not dead but lost to you by choice.

OMGOSH mama, That statement was so.....great, for lack of a better way to put it. I'm not a birthmom but I swear I have chills you put it so perfectly at how I imagine it would feel to give a child up.

Thank you to all the mamas that Do this, I know there are some very happy families out there that wouldn't have children without you

Re: Birthmom Chit Chat

Stopping in to say "hello". I am a birthmother to a little girl who is turning 18 this year. I am also a mother to 4 other daughters. It's great meeting other birthmothers & adoptive mothers (we are all mothers in the end) here.

Re: Birthmom Chit Chat

Has anyone ever had issues with their open adoption as far as visitation or anything?
