Video: Birth Mothers Never Forget Their Decision

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman June 19, 2015

This tender monologue – thoughts from a birth mother – are expressive of what many birth mothers may have experienced and continue to experience. Loss, longing, and hope are all things birth mothers feel.

Birth mothers never forget the children they place for adoption. They remember their children every day, and they hope for the very best for them. Birth mothers continue to love their children. For some, especially those birth mothers who were not given a choice but were forced to place, the loss never leaves and the pain never heals. This video advocates for open birth records so adoptees can find these mothers who have never forgotten them.
