It’s been a week since the Lifetime Healing Training and Birth Mother Support Group. Ashley Mitchell of Lifetime Healing & Big Tough Girl delivered an amazing session on how we can better support a woman after she has placed a child for adoption. The reality is, there’s grief involved in the healing process. As adoption professionals, we need to be aware of that reality so we can better support Birth Mothers. As a community, we need to do everything we can to listen and be there for women who are hurting. Post-placement care is a great need in the adoption industry, and we are hopeful that more and more organizations will help Birth Mothers get the resources they need to heal after placement.
Adoption professionals from Family Connections Christian Adoptions, Heartsent Adoptions – Pasadena, Claris Health, and AdoptMatch joined us for a full day of training. We were so encouraged by the insights of each individual, and we hope the adoption community will continue to work toward making post-placement care for Birth Mothers a reality!
Thank you FCCA for allowing us to partner to bring Lifetime Healing to Southern California and for leading the charge to make post-placement care for birth mothers reality in each and every adoptive placement.
