Adoptive parents are so grateful for birth mothers. There is a unique love that exists between adoptive and birth parents. Sometimes, adoptive parents can’t provide the support and needs of a birth parents, and so finding advocates is essential.

During this discussion the importance of birth parent advocates is addressed. It is best for the entire adoption triad to have everyone in a healthy state and at peace about the adoption decisions they have made. If birth parents have advocates who act as listening ears, supportive strength and even offer advice, they are better able to deal with the myriad of emotions that accompany placing a child for adoption. Adoptive parents can help find advocates for birth parents as they connect with extended family and friends.
