Birth Mother Brunch
Grace Church, Eden Prairie
Saturday, May 9th, 2020
In 1990 a group of birth mothers in Seattle, WA wanted to remember and honor the decision they made to place their children for adoption. They created what is now known as Birth Mother’s Day, a day in which birth mothers are honored and recognized for their courageous and loving adoption decisions. Birth Mother’s Day is nationally recognized on the Saturday before Mother’s Day.
After hosting our Annual Birth Mother Dinner for 18 years we decided it was time for a change. In 2019 we hosted a Birth Mother Brunch on Birth Mother’s Day itself! Along with a new day and time, we were also at a new location: Grace Church in Eden Prairie.
If you have never attended our Birth Mother Event before, we encourage you to consider attending our brunch in May 2020. This is a wonderful way to connect with other birth mothers and to share about your adoption journey with people who really understand, because they chose adoption, too!
Birth mothers are welcome to attend no matter which agency they placed through. All birth mothers attend free of charge and are encouraged to bring a guest. Each guest is kindly asked to pay $10 at the door in the form of cash or check.
What Others Are Saying
I have been fortunate enough to attend the Birth Mother Dinner that New Life hosts for the last three years. Placing my child for adoption was the hardest decision I ever made, but it has been very fruitful. My daughter and her mom have attended with me and our relationship has been enriched because of the dinner. Thanks to New Life for supporting many birth moms. – Victoria, Birth Mother
The Birth Mother Dinner is a sweet, safe place where I am able to fully celebrate God’s work in the life of my daughter, my granddaughter, and my granddaughter’s adoptive mother. Blessings are found in listening and relating to the stories shared throughout the evening, knowing those who are seated at the dinner table with us understand a strange mix of grief and profound joy in my heart. The theme, the music, the speaker, the conversations, the reflection time, the blessing of those who understand, and the environment of grace and professionalism all bring a measure of healing to my heart each year. – Diane, Birth Grandmother
