Birth Mother Stories

Read birth mother stories about the choice of adoption. The Lifetime Adoption Foundation is a nonprofit organization which awards financial assistance and scholarships to women who have made an adoption plan. We feel blessed to be able to grant these women with educational scholarships in recognition of the choice they’ve made for their children.

By choosing adoption, these birth mothers create a future, not only for adoptive couples but also for their child. It’s wonderful for us to be able to see birth moms realizing their dreams of attending college with our adoption scholarships! Here, birth mothers share their stories in their own words:

“My Child Shouldn’t Have to Pay for My Mistakes”

Upon realizing that she was pregnant, this birth mother came to realize that she wouldn’t be able to raise her child the way she wanted to. She chose to make an adoption plan, because as she puts it, “My child shouldn’t have to pay for my mistakes…I wasn’t going to let her be raised on welfare and without a father, it was so unfair to allow that to happen. She deserved a better life.” Read her story here…

“My Life-changing Experience With Adoption Has Made Me a Better Person”

Another of our birth mother stories, this one is about a birth mother who made an adoption plan for her baby when she was a single mother struggling to raise a two-year-old. This ultimately led to the work she feels destined to be doing today, working with economically disadvantaged families.

When she got pregnant, this birth mother was leading a life of partying and irresponsibility and realized she wouldn’t be able to give her child a stable home. She shares, “I decided adoption was the only answer. Once I made the choice of adoption, I never had second thoughts. I knew I made the right decision and I still feel the same way today.” Here’s her story…

“I Want to Reach Others Who May Be Scared or Unsure”

The adoption process can take a major emotional toll on birth mothers, as this woman attests. She shares about her journey from denial to acceptance.
