April 9, 2010, Newsletter Issue #185: Showing Appreciation to Your Child’s Birth Mother

Tip of the Week

If you have adopted privately, and are remaining in contact with your child’s birth mother, don’t forget to honor her on Birth Mother’s Day which is the Saturday before Mother’s Day.  Show her your appreciation by sending her a gift that she will treasure:  a locket with a smiling photo of your child, or a lock of his/her hair; a handwritten letter of gratitude, including a detailed description of your child’s day-to-day life, and a photo.  There are several adoption shops online that carry beautiful gifts designed especially with the birth mother in mind.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money to let your child’s birth mother know that you are thankful for the gift of your adopted child.
