Merry Christmas from Adoption Choices of Texas
Merry Christmas from Adoption Choices of Texas! For some, the holiday season seems to come and go faster than they like, but it may feel like a drag for birth mothers. The holiday season can be hard on some birth mothers due to adoption decisions and unsupportive family members and friends.
We want to make sure that you know that you are not alone and that we are thinking of you during this holiday season. Christmas is a time to be with your loved ones, but we know that it can be hard to have a happy holiday when you don’t have your child who you put up for adoption in Texas as a birth mother.
So, how can you celebrate this holiday season as a birth mother? There are so many ways to have a happy holiday. Here at Adoption Choices of Texas, we want to help you through the holiday season because we know it isn’t always happy or jolly.
Send Your Child and Their Adoptive Family a Christmas Card
Depending on which type of adoption you chose and how much communication was negotiated, you may be able to send a Christmas card to your child and their adoptive family. This can be a great way to show that you are thinking of them during this holiday season. Sending them a Merry Christmas text on holiday may also be a great way to show them that even though you put them up for adoption, you still care for them and want them to be happy.
You may be able to FaceTime with your child and their adoptive parents and see a few of the gifts Santa brought your child Christmas morning! You may also be able to do a gift exchange with your child and their adoptive parents. This can be a great way to share your love with your child and have that holiday memory with them even if you are not their parent. A potential Christmas dinner invite could be on the table if you have a great relationship with the adoptive parents.
You can also share your holiday traditions with the adoptive parents, and maybe they’ll start to create more memories with your child during the holidays through your family holiday traditions. This can be a great way to continue a family tradition even when you’re not parenting your child.
Spend the Holidays with a Birth Mother Support Group
Even if you can’t spend the holiday with your child, you can still spend it with your loved ones. This doesn’t need to be your family. Your support group can be close friends. You can have a Christmas dinner with the people you consider your support team at home; surround yourself with people you trust and people you love.
Find a support group of other birth mothers who have given up their baby for adoption. Suppose you are spending the holiday alone or you don’t have anyone in your family or friends who you consider your support team. In that case, you can find a support group of other birth mothers on Facebook or another social media. Surrounding yourself with other birth mothers who are going through a similar situation as you are key to such a stressful time of year. Christmas is a stressful time of year, but it may be more stressful for some birth mothers who are missing their child they gave up for adoption in Texas.
You may still be feeling grief and lonely during the holiday season even though Dallas adoption was the best decision for you and your child at the time. It’s okay to feel this way. Texas adoption is such a huge decision and can change your life forever, so it’s best to surround yourself with other birth mothers who are feeling the same or may have the advice to help you enjoy yourself with your loved ones while also having your child in your thoughts.
