One of the questions we often ask ourselves at On Your Feet is, "Where are the birthmothers?" They sacrifice so much to give the gift of a child to a family who may not have other options. Why are they invisible? At On Your Feet, we regularly hear stories of women who leave school, whose support networks vanish, who are left, post-adoption, without resources, jobs, often having kept the entire experience a secret from family and friends. The case management services and retreats offered by On Your Feet are an important resource for those navigating these complex issues.
We honor the choice, empower the woman and foster a respect for the decision. Thank you for sharing this journey with us!
