Celebrating Mothers & Birth Mothers

By Abbie Sheets

Observed on May 12th, Mother’s Day is a special occasion that provides an opportunity for us to express our deep appreciation and gratitude for the mothers in our lives. While mothers should be celebrated every day, this holiday offers a chance to show them just how much they mean to us. From nurturing and guiding us through life to offering unconditional love, mothers play an invaluable role in shaping who we become.

We must also acknowledge and honor the birth mothers who play a crucial part in the journey of life. These brave women make significant decisions out of love and care for their child, entrusting their future to adoptive families. In the realm of “adoption de bebes” or baby adoption, we recognize the courage and selflessness of these mothers. As we celebrate Mother’s Day this year, Adoption Choices of Texas believes in extending our recognition to both adoptive and birth mothers. Let us honor all mothers for their profound contributions and the impact they have on our lives.

What is Birth Mother’s Day?

The day before Mother’s Day is known as Birth Mother’s Day, a special occasion to celebrate and honor the contributions of birth mothers. This day falls on May 11th, and provides a moment to recognize their courage and the sacrifices they have made. It also is a reminder of the lasting impact they have on the lives of their children and adoptive families.

Birth Mother’s Day offers an opportunity for birth mothers to come together, share their stories, and connect with others who understand their unique experiences. It allows them to receive the love and appreciation they deserve for their selflessness and bravery.

By dedicating a day to celebrating birth mothers, we create a supportive and nurturing space where they can feel valued and respected for their role in shaping the future. It also serves as a reminder to honor the strength and resilience they demonstrate in their journey. With Birth Mother’s Day, we can acknowledge their important place in the adoption community.

How to Approach Birth Mother’s Day

When observing Birth Mother’s Day, it’s essential to approach the occasion with sensitivity and respect. Each birth mother’s experience and adoption plan is unique and may have had a profound impact on her life. For some, this day serves as a time of reflection and gratitude. While for others, it can bring up difficult emotions and memories.

When discussing Birth Mother’s Day and unplanned pregnancy, be kind and compassionate, acknowledging the complexities of their journey. Remind the birth mother of her resilience, strength, and the selfless decision she made out of love for her child. It’s important to create a supportive environment where her emotions are validated and her contributions are honored.

Take time to listen and understand the adoption process, offering your support and encouragement. Let this day serve as a moment to recognize her bravery and the enduring impact of her decision. By doing so, you can help birth mothers feel seen, respected, and appreciated for the significant role they play in the lives of adoptive families. 

Observing Birth Mother’s Day

Celebrating Birth Mother’s Day is a meaningful way to honor and appreciate the significant contributions of birth mothers in the lives of their children and adoptive families. Here are some thoughtful ways to celebrate the day:

  1. Reach Out with a Message: Send a heartfelt card, letter, or message expressing gratitude and appreciation for their selflessness, courage, and strength.
  2. Give a Thoughtful Gift: Consider giving a meaningful gift to symbolize your appreciation for them. 
  3. Host a Gathering: If possible, organize a gathering where birth mothers can connect with each other, share their stories, and offer support. This can be an intimate luncheon, a support group meeting, or an event hosted by adoption organizations.
  4. Acknowledge Their Journey: Take the time to listen to their story and acknowledge the unique journey they’ve been on. This can help them feel seen and appreciated.
  5. Support Adoption Organizations: Make a donation to an adoption organization or a cause that supports birth mothers and offers adoption options. This shows appreciation for the work they do in helping birth mothers and their children.

As we take time to honor these incredible women, let’s remember that their journey deserves appreciation not just on Birth Mother’s Day but every day. By doing so, we show our respect for their resilience, strength, and the enduring legacy they leave behind.
