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
