From Mom to Mom: A Letter to a Birth Mother Who Helped My Dreams Come True
Dear Birth Mother,
I am your child’s adoptive mom. I am writing this letter because I wanted to take a moment to thank you. You are such a special person in my life. Without your sacrifice, I wouldn’t be able to have the family I have today. Additionally, while I will never fully grasp the loss you have experienced, I hope that I can bring you comfort when I say that your baby is so loved.
Your baby is absolutely perfect. Every time I hold them, my heart overflows with joy. I promise that I will always tell them about you and about the brave decision you made to give them a brighter future. As a mom, I can’t wait to see them grow up and thrive, and I know that is what you want too.
Once your baby is older, I hope they can meet you. You and I can sit and watch them play while swapping stories. You can tell me what your pregnancy was like, and I can tell you all about your child’s milestones. In the future, I hope we can be friends and love your baby together.
From one mom to another,
Your baby’s adoptive mom
