Birth Mother Love

Birth mother love is sacred, beautiful, and heartbreaking.

“The reasons behind this decision are vast and varied, but in the end, it comes down to love.”

The decision to place a child for adoption is not an easy decision. It is not a decision that a bad person makes. It is a choice that a mother makes when she cannot offer her child what she wants in a family. She may have any number of reasons to make this decision, but it is always because she is putting her child’s needs above her wants.

Love is an incredibly strong feeling. It has the power to make people do hard things. Love does not make life easier; in some ways, it can make life quite difficult. But love for your child is perhaps the greatest kind of love.

It’s unfortunate that birth mothers are stigmatized with not loving their children. In fact, these women love their children so much, they are willing to make an ultimate sacrifice. There may be other factors in play to make this decision happen, but it always comes down to the love a birth mother has for her child. Birth mother love is real and strong.
