Join the Anthology of Birthparent Letters

“I Think of You on Your Birthday” will be a collection of writings from birthparents to the children they placed for adoption.

It’s a recurring question among adoptees: Does she think of me on my birthday? And it’s a recurring post among birthmoms: It’s his birthday and there’s so much I want to say but cannot.
