“I come to the meetings…to be in a safe space of understanding and true compassion for what we bear in the depths of our being.”


– Birth Mother, 1975

“After placing my daughter in an open adoption, I felt alone and like no one knew what I was going through. When I found Ohio Birthparent Group, I immediately felt a sense of family and a connection.”


– Birth Mother, 2010

“The monthly meetings and one-on-one support from members helped me gain the courage I needed to tell my other children about my relinquished child and to reunite with my son in person.”


– Birth Mother, 1988



“Ohio Birthparent Group helped guide me

during the most challenging times of my life.

I’ve learned so much about myself

and the complexity of adoption.”


-Birth Father, 2005
