Once there were two women.
One, my darling, is your birth mom and the other is your mother.
Two different lives, shaped to make yours one.
One became your guiding star; the other became your sun.
The first gave you life, and the second taught you to live it
The first gave you a need for love, and the second was there to give it.
One gave you a nationality; the other gave you a name.
One gave you the seed of talent, the other gave you aim.
One gave you emotions; the other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile; the other dried your tears.
One chose adoption. It was all that she could do. The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you. And now you ask me through your tears, the age-old question through the years; Heredity or environment, which are you the product of? Neither, my darling, neither. Just two different kinds of love. ~ Author Unknown ~
"We feel so much love for our sons birth mother, and pray for her often. Without her love and sacrifice for her son we would not be able to have a family. She will forever hold a place in our hearts and be a part of our family."
"There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about my child's first mom. My daughter looks just like her. Every time I am reminded of her, I say a little prayer for her. I hope she knows how much we treasure her."
"Even though I didn't meet my birth mother until I was an adult, I always wondered who she was. I knew deep in my heart that she loved me and made the best decision for me. I've had a great life! I feel incredibly grateful to her."
"Grace is the birth mom of our precious and wonderful son. Her wisdom to seek adoption and the sacrificial love of her son were evident even as she still carried him. As we have watched him grow, our deep love, appreciation, respect and admiration of Grace has grown. We admire her respect for the dignity and beauty of life as something to treasure even when circumstances are not ideal or the situation is not what you intended. We cherish her sacrificial gift of love to us and her son by giving him a forever home to provide him opportunities she could not offer and to provide us a deep and profound joy we could not have had on our own. She will forever have a special place of honor, admiration and love in our home and hearts."
"I grew in your tummy. You took care of me. I love you."
"We think of you all the time. I wonder where you are and what you're doing. Please know that our son is growing up to be a really great kid! Sending much love your way."
"To the Mom who made me a Mom:
Although my little boy doesn’t understand who exactly his tummy mommy is, we talk about how she loved him so much that she chose us to be his parents! I know that you chose me to care for your baby and make sure he grows into a sweet and loving young man. I still do not know how you were able to make the great sacrifice but will be forever grateful! Someday he will understand how much you loved him and the sacrifice you made as well! Thank you doesn’t seem strong enough but I will be forever grateful that you made me a Mom!"
"We were blessed to adopt a baby boy in 2018 which also brought our beautiful birth other into our lives. Meeting her has been one of the greatest experiences of our life. She is courageous, selfless, and wanted more for her child than she did for herself. Her life circumstances weren’t fair, weren’t easy, and yet she was working so hard to persevere. Our experience and time together will always be one of the most impactful experiences of our lives. We have written each other, prayed for each other and celebrated milestones. Our visits have brought us peace and the joy of watching one of life’s greatest gifts, our son, grow. We have so much admiration for our amazing birth mother. She has taught and given us so much, and she will always be loved by our family!!"
"I wouldn't be who I am if it wasn't for you. Thank you Birth Mom."
"There are a few days that will forever connect us to one another. One day belongs to the birth of a precious baby boy. One belongs to the day you placed him in my arms, and one belongs to both of us as we’re honored as his mother and mama. You are incredible, and I want to make sure you always remember. Your love for my sweet boy was so powerful that you entrusted him to me. You chose to give him life on that cold night. You chose to place him in my arms on that very late and quiet night, and I choose to honor you always for both of those choices on Mother’s Day and every day! Thank you for being brave!"
