In a recent post, we shared how the hope and mission of all of us here at TruAdopt is to support expectant parents and guide them through their adoption journey. We strive to give birth mothers a voice and to spread awareness of struggle, pain, and joy that are all part of the process.
We want to share birth mom stories from three great organizations. These stories get to the heart of the matter — that placing a child is an act of selfless love. We are so moved and inspired by these women. We hope that these blog posts and videos will be as much of an inspiration to you as they are to us!

I told him that the decision wasn’t about me, it was about my son.”
