Letters to Birthmother’s
No matter what type of adoption you are in: international or domestic, your child’s birthmother made a difficult choice that has given you a child to love forever. Regardless of their situations, without the courageous decisions of birthmothers around the world, many of us would not be mothers or future mothers. Take a moment to show your birth mother that you remember her: Light a candle, say a prayer, send her a note, and if your children are old enough to participate include them in the process as well.
What to include in the letters and updates to your Birthmother: ·
Tell us about your child, his/her personality, funny stories, likes and dislikes, milestones, etc.
Individual pictures or ones with family that helps us to see that she is happy.
Tell us about places you’ve visited, actives the child participates in, things he is good (or bad) at.
It’s not always about what you say, but the care you put into sending letters or pictures.
If your child is old enough, send picture she has made.
