Holiday Gift Guide- Birth Mom Edition


Holidays, birthdays and any occasion for that matter can come with an extra level of stress as you scurry to find the perfect gift for your child's birth mom/parent. There always seems to be a looming pressure to getting the "right" gift, but sometimes that comes with an impersonal feel to the gift you ultimately choose.


We have created this gift guide to spark new ideas of unique items you could gift to your child's birth mom or at least lead you to an idea for your unique situation! We hope this helps!


The guide below coordinates by number to the social media graphic we posted on Facebook and Instagram.

2. Sam's Sister-

The author, Juliet, wrote Sam’s Sister while working with birth mothers who struggled to explain their open adoption plans/journey to the children they were parenting (pre or post placement). This is a great way for the birth mom in your life to share with the children she parents what their role as birth siblings look like.

5. Being You Journal-

This journal is for birthmothers, who need help navigating their open adoption relationship. BEING YOU focuses more on relationships after placement. Birth moms now will have access to the 'how' to have healthy relationships with others post-placement, including their child, their child's adoptive parents, dating, marriage, and their child's siblings. BEING YOU covers topics like fitting in vs. belonging, pregnancy after placement, sibling connections, and healthy conflict. It creates a space to process the long-term effects of being a birthmother and think through how to engage in the adoption relationship throughout the life of the child.
