There is no better way to break the stereotypes than to hear from a birthmom herself. The feelings and emotions are real, raw, and unrehearsed in this video.  You’ll also get to hear from an adoptee talking about adoption from her own perspective.

Birthparents go through a range of emotions when they choose to place; there are also many different reasons they choose to place.  But regardless of their varying reasons, you can surely see the love radiating from every single woman in this video.

(My favorite part is the little AA Milne quotes scattered throughout!)
