Welcome to Birthmom Stories
I am a birthmom who placed a daughter 8 years ago. When I placed her, I was given a book which was written in the early '70s, and it was more like a book on how to deal with grieveing the loss of a child. It put a very negative tone on adoption as well. These days, open adoptions are much more frequent, and most are very positive, I have met a few other bithmoms since placing my daughter, and I feel that our stories can help other young girls who are struggling with the idea of adoption.
