After hosting our Annual Birth Mother Dinner for 18 years we have decided it’s time for a change. This year we will host a Birth Mother Brunch on Saturday, May 11th, Birth Mother’s Day itself! Along with a new day and time, we will also be at a new location: Grace Church in Eden Prairie.
If you have never attended our Birth Mother Dinner before, we encourage you to consider attending this year’s brunch. 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!
May the Lord keep watch between you and me when
we are away from each other. – Genesis 31:49

Guest SpeakerOur theme this year is One Journey, Many Stories. Birth mothers have made the brave decision to navigate the adoption journey, yet each person’s story is unique. We want to recognize and celebrate that everyone’s experience is different, so this year we will have a panel of birth mothers shares about their unique adoption journey. We will also have a time to share with others as you are comfortable.
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 upon registration online or 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
