Group Description

This is a safe harbor for all Mothers who gave birth and who were forced/coerced/pressured, to surrender their newborn baby/babies to a "Closed Adoption" without being given any other choice (i.e. keeping your baby), during the time period sometimes referred to as the Baby Scoop Era (Post WWII thru the early 1970's). Support is offered for those in reunion, support if you have been refused contact by your lost child or have refused to be contacted by your lost child; are actively searching for your lost child; and for Mothers who are not searching but want a place to speak of that which they have been so silent for so long. We offer support in all areas associated with the loss of our children to adoption.

Firstmothers Connect will also engage in areas of activism in the "Adoption Arena" and fully encourages members to contribute articles, opinions and factual research, that reveals and educates about the lies, myths, coercion and fraud that continue to exploit us. We encourage all members to discuss any topic on adoption as it relates to Firstmothers and their personal experiences.

A few simple guidelines:
* Please refrain from using the Birth Term in reference to mothers or children lost to adoption.
* No member in this group will be allowed to diminish, discount, spam, negate, correct or reprimand another member.
* No advertising of services, other groups, etc. without the express permission of the Owner and/or Moderator.
* Any preaching of religion, doctrine or politics is absolutely disallowed.
* All posts are the property of the author and can not be used without the express their permission. No cross posting allowed.
As Owner and Moderator we Encourage all members to contribute their opinions and thoughts; we absolutely DISCOURAGE LURKING. Any member who has not posted in 14 days, who has not notified Owner or Moderator of temporary absence from the Group could be unsubscribed.
