Birth Mother Experiences in Adoption Relinquishment; Journalist Inquiry I have been speaking at length this past week with a very well established journalist how is looking into the experiences of mothers relinquishing their newborns to adoption through voluntary domestic placement. Based on the conversations, I am confident that this request for specific stories and experiences is not only very legitimate, but will result in a very informative piece on ethics....

By Susie Another milestone in my reunion with my firstborn happened last weekend. (It only took 8 years and 8 months!) For the first time ever, all of my children AND (almost) all of my grandchildren were together! It was the first time Christopher’s two children met their aunt, uncles, and cousins. It was an amazing weekend, to say the least. I am so thankful that all three of my...

Between the Extremes; Complexity of a Birth Mother
Musings of the Lame; Adoption Truths Exposed

Yes, it is complex being a birth mother. This one act involves a duality of polar opposites. How can I be a victim of an industry, yet I made a choice? How can I be selfless and selfish at the same time? How I can I be a survivor, yet completely broken? How can I do the unthinkable, and then manage to carry on? How could I have been so weak as to lose my child, to not fight for him, and then so strong as to breath into another day?

Universal Motherhood
Musings of the Lame; Adoption Truths Exposed
by Claudia Corrigan DArcy

There is not a "birthmother" gene. There is not a nerve that is cut. There is not a build up around her heart. She will give birth like every other mother has before her and every mother after. The very act of giving birth creates a mother even if legal paperwork or extenuating circumstances leave her unable to parent. There are no lines separating us here, no boundaries, no differences in race, country, or in time. There are no lines, either, separating a “normal” birth process from one that ends up as an adoption. One cannot just turn off those bonding hormones no matter what legal paperwork ..read more

Letter to Indiana Legislators in Support of SB91
Musings of the Lame; Adoption Truths Exposed
by Laura Marie Scoggins

By Laura Marie Scoggins I am writing to encourage your support of Senate Bill 91 which will allow ALL Hoosier Adoptees equal access to their original birth certificates. Pre 1994 adoptees deserve the same access as post 1994 adoptees. One of the most common questions adoptees are asked when they tell people they are searching for their biological family or have been reunited is “why would you even want to...
