Honoring Birth Mothers

27 04 2010

If you don’t follow us on Facebook, perhaps you should do so today.   Here’s why…

Just nine hours ago we posted a question: “How do you honor the birth mother of your adopted chidl(ren)?  Do you?”   The response to this question has generated the largest number of comments since the inception of our Facebook page! 29 adoptive families have responded with a variety of ways that they and their adopted children remember and honor the child(ren)’s birth mom.   The responses include buying flowers and displaying them around the house to planting a tree each year to serve as a daily reminder.

As Mother’s Day nears, it is so very wonderful to know that so many adoptive families remember and honor their adopted children’s mother of birth.  If you are an adoptive parent and haven’t created your own way yet, perhaps reading the comments of adoptive families may give you a few ideas to share with your children.

Thanks to everyone who shared their family tradition with the Joint Council community.
