Many pre-adoptive and adoptive parents have lots of questions about the experience of a birth mother. Because of the private and often emotionally complicated nature of placing a child for adoption, few birth mothers openly identify as birth parents. For this reason, gaining firsthand insight into the birth parent journey can be difficult. This webinar features a conversation with birth mother and Adoptions Together Homestudy Specialist Jenna Meyers, who placed her daughter for adoption with Adoptions Together ten years ago. She discusses her decision to place, the reactions of her friends and family, choosing a family for her child, what it was like when her daughter was born, and navigating openness over ten years.
