I am linking up with Lisa over at for her wonderful Five Minute Friday.

So here we go ... Word is BRAVE


I think it is so brave when a mother gives up her child for adoption. I cannot say I could do that I carried my babies for 34 weeks and I will admit when they were born I had a hard time sharing them with anyone. Family and friends would come to visit and yes I wanted them to share in our joy I just didn't want to share them holding my babies. I wanted all the cuddles and loves for myself. I learned quickly that I was outnumbered and I learned that my babies had enough love to go around and that they knew the people that were their for them and would love them all. I look at mothers that give their babies up for adoption and think "you are so brave and selfless" it is amazing to me. It is one of the hardest decisions anyone could ever make and from talking to some birth moms one of the decisions that they have never forgot. Birth moms give up their babies for a multitude of reasons but the main reason is love. And they are so brave for doing so for knowing that yes they will be able to love their baby but wanting so much more for them.


A note to this post if you don't agree with me that is ok but please remember that this is a family blog and I do not need a lecture or rude comments .

What do you think of when you hear the word BRAVE? Please make a post and link up with Five Minute Friday.


  1. This is so true! Some mothers are not much more than a child herself and giving up baby, for whatever reason she is unable to keep the baby herself, is a noble, brave step to take. I don't think I would ever have been able to do that.

  2. So beautiful. And so true!

    My family is what it is today because of several brave birth moms!
