A Unique Mother's Day Tribute
For Birth Mothers...
On May 9, Kinship Center adoption staff in So CA hosted a special celebration for the many birth mothers Kinship Center works with who have made the difficult decision to relinquish their infant for adoption.
This annual event is the chance for women to come together and share stories and feelings...and to be with others who have faced the same journey.

Here's a special poem posted by a Kinship Center staff member.
Once there were two women who never knew each other.
Two different lives shaped to make you one.
The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.
One gave you a nationality. The other gave you a name.
One gave you emotions. The other calmed your fears.
One sought for you a home that she could not provide.
And now you ask me, through your tears,
Heredity or environment, which are you a product of?
