Choosing Adoption For My Baby: New Year’s Resolutions For a Birth Mother  

It’s finally a new year, which everyone has been waiting for. Since you put your kid for adoption, the new year may bring you a variety of emotions. It might be your first New Year’s or holiday as a birth mother, and enjoying the holidays may be different this time. The New Year is all about joy, festivities, and new beginnings for most people. This, however, may not be the case for you. You may feel lonely or emotional over the holidays. You might choose to visit or be with your child rather than having them live far away in the home you have picked for them. Even if you see cheerful people all around you, you still feel lonely. 

If you need help with adoption now, you can call us at 888-307-3340, text us at 888-307-3340, or email us here.

How Do I Deal With Birth Mother Grief During The New Year? 

You may believe that others will not understand how you feel and that you will not listen to them. But, instead, you could wonder, “Why do I feel so lost?” How could anybody else be so badly hurt? Regardless of what your family and friends try to tell you, they cannot plug the gap in your heart that a child’s love and embrace would fill. We understand that it may not be simple, but there are options. There are many birth mothers who have gone through something similar to your grief. Everyone expresses sorrow differently, but no one hasn’t experienced heartbreak and loss over a holiday. You can reach out to us at Adoption Choices of Texas or the birthmother community at any time to take care of yourself. You will have all you need to be ready for your first New Year’s as a birth mother right now. 

  Adoption In Texas: What you can do to help  

  1. Reach out to your child or the family. During the holidays, this is the best time to talk to your child’s adoptive parents. You can ask to schedule a brief visit with them. If you picked an open adoption, then most of the time, the parents will include you in the celebration, especially in your child’s early years.  
  2. Send a gift or letter. Whether or not you visit your child, you may still give them a gift, letter, or a reminder of you. Any adoptive parents will joyfully welcome your gifts of affection, and you’ll feel less alone during the holidays because you’ll be a part of your baby’s life.
  3. Spend more time with friends and family.  You may want to stay indoors or be alone over the holidays, but you should get out and surround yourself with friends and family. You chose adoption for your baby because it would provide a better life for your child. So when you’re not feeling cheerful, tell yourself that it’s important to remember that.

Your sadness, on the other hand, will pass. Instead of grieving, make it your New Year’s goal to be happy for yourself and your kid. Regardless of the difficulties you face, remember that it is not impossible to overcome them and that you will be stronger as a result of them. Celebrate your birthmother’s journey as you love yourself and accept your motherhood. 

Your First New Year as a Birth Mother 

The holidays may be an emotional time for you. As a result, you may find it worthwhile to be prepared for your first New Year as a birth mother. In an open adoption, your connection with the adopted family might vary. It influences how involved you are in the life of the infant. For example, you may not be ready to start your holiday traditions, so you might ask what the adoptive family currently does and become a part of it. We wish you a Happy New Year!
