Adoption Choices of Oklahoma Celebrates National Son and Daughters Day
As a birth mother in an Oklahoma adoption, there are many unexpected challenges that come up throughout the year. We understand that August can be a difficult time for many birth mothers, with National Son and Daughters Day fast approaching on August 11, and we want you to know that we are here for you. At Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we want to support you throughout your unwanted pregnancy and Oklahoma adoption process, no matter where you are in your journey.
While we understand that August can be a very difficult month for birth mothers, Adoption Choices of Oklahoma wants to help you celebrate the special bond you share with your child, even if they are with an adoptive family. It is important to remember that you will always be your child’s birth mother, no matter what.
Celebrate National Son and Daughters Day in an Open Adoption
If you are an Oklahoma birth mother wanting to celebrate National Son and Daughters Day in an open adoption, there are many different ways to honor the special bond you have with your child. While the adoptive family will have to approve any contact that occurs between you and your child, this is a very small obstacle, especially if you are in an open relationship with your child and their adoptive family.
As a birth mother in an Oklahoma open adoption, much of your National Son and Daughters Day celebration will depend on your relationship with your child’s adoptive family. If most of your communication occurs via letters or phone calls, this may be the best way to honor you and your child’s bond. However, you may be able to arrange a more personal meeting with the adoptive family, such as a video chat or even an in-person meeting, depending on the openness of your relationship.
Celebrate This Day With a Closed Adoption
While we understand that it may be more difficult for you to celebrate National Son and Daughters Day in an Oklahoma closed adoption, there are still many different ways to honor your relationship with your child. At Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we think that it is important for all birth mothers to celebrate this special holiday, and we will work with you to find an option that works for you.
If you are an Oklahoma birth mother struggling to celebrate National Son and Daughters Day, there are several different options that may feel right to you. First, if you are struggling with any difficult emotions surrounding your child’s adoption, you may want to write your feelings in a letter addressed to your child. Even if you never send it, writing your difficult thoughts and emotions can help you process them. Next, you should consider celebrating with your friends and family who supported you throughout your adoption process, as they are likely to understand any of the difficult feelings you are experiencing.
Celebrate the Holiday with Other Birth Mothers
As a birth mother in Oklahoma who has given her baby up for adoption, it can often be difficult to remember that you are not alone. You should remember that Adoption Choices of Oklahoma works with many different birth mothers who are in the same situation as yourself and are likely experiencing the same difficult feelings. We believe that no birth mother should navigate her adoption journey alone, and it can often be comforting to meet someone else with the same experience.
