Anger is a common emotion for birth mothers who have placed a child for adoption. It may be constantly present, or it may surface around the child’s birthday, when the birth mother has another child, or during other significant life events.
Anger, itself, is not a bad thing. Anger can be an incredible motivator when used properly. Many birth mothers report that using this powerful emotion has helped them to become advocates for other birth parents and for themselves. In doing so, they have been able to help other women in making the decision to parent their child, or place the child for adoption. Helping other birth mothers gives them a sense of purpose and healing.
