Adoption Birth Mother Poem

Poems are a great medium of expression. Muriel Rukeyser is known to have said, "Breath-in experience, breathe-out poetry." In many ways, the cathartic process of reading or writing a poem can influence the way someone perceives a situation. When it comes to adoption, birth mother poems are probably some of the most moving just because the extreme emotions tied to post-placement feelings or those that come with reunion. Robert Frost once said that "a poem begins as a lump in the throat."

AdoptionPoetry.com is a great online forum for poets in the adoption community. There are literally hundreds of poems about the adoption process, conveniently categorized by the point of view of a poem's speaker or characters as well as by process. Speakers can be anyone from the birth relatives to the adoptee or adoptive parents. There is no member of the adoption triad left out. The categories include everything related to adoption pre- and post-placement. The poem "From God's Arms, to my Arms, to Yours" is a poem-turned-song by Michael McLean, which retells a birth mother's thought process during a placement with a reflective air that many birth mothers may find inspiring like advice or a great way to put words to their own feelings.

Birth mother poems, whether you're writing one or reading one, are great "tools" and a step toward understanding the kind of struggles she may go through.
