SPANISH FORK, Utah, April 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Birth Mother Baskets (BMB) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, created by Gina Crotts, a birth mom, to offer positive support, hope and courage to expectant moms and birth moms throughout the adoption process, especially post adoption. Women faced with an unplanned pregnancy have little to no knowledge on how to create an adoption plan. Often times, they are unaware of their rights. Creating an adoption plan is about creating a post adoption agreement that benefits the adoptive parents, the birth parents and the child in a healthy open adoption.
BMB started by providing gift baskets to birth moms, post placement, to let them know they are not alone. These gift baskets have now become a mere symbol of the post placement support BMB offers. BMB's website www.birthmotherbaskets.org provides adoption information, blog post by birth moms and a Hoping To Adopt page for adoptive parents profiles. Creating a safe and positive space for all birth moms to feel comfortable enough to share their stories and be heard without judgment is BMB's mission. They encourage birth moms to realize their self-worth, gain confidence and find their own voice. BMB works with adoption agencies and law firms, as a resource to mentor, support and advocate for their birth moms.
Gina Crotts and Birth Mother Baskets are big proponents of using Childconnect as part of a healthy post adoption plan. CAIRS Solutions developed and supports Childconnect. Developed as an online post adoption tool, Childconnect addresses some of the hassles that lead to post placement agreements breaking down, which can cause added grief and stress to birth moms. Adoptive parents and birth moms sign up for Childconnect through their adoption agency or attorney. Adoptive parents simply log on to their protected portal and upload photos, videos and letters for their birth moms to view any time. These photos and letters are also printed and bound into a hardcover Lifebook, which is mailed to the birth moms with every post adoption update. Giving birth moms reliable post placement updates has led to much healthier post adoption relationships.
Bundling Childconnect with a Birth Mother Basket, post placement Programs, Birth Mom Retreats and a community of birth moms; Birth Mother Baskets has built a powerful post adoption solution. That is exactly the vision Gina Crotts had when forming BMB thirteen years ago.
