Our panel of birth mothers share adoption misconceptions they’ve encountered, and they debunk those misconceptions while sharing the realities. One of the very sad misconceptions is that the birth mother doesn’t love her child. Of course she loves her child! Birth mothers would have the world know that being pregnant for nine months, then enduring the heartbreak of separation is a true act of love. Other misconceptions include the belief that all adoptions are closed, that birth mothers have no rights and no connection with the child, that those who do continue a relationship with the child are uncomfortable in that situation. This video opens our eyes to what is real and what is misconceived.
