We’re a pro-adoption movement. We’re not an adoption agency. We’re not a pregnancy resource center or a church ministry. We’re a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity organization headquartered in Dallas, Texas that exists to change the perception of adoption through honest, informative and hopeful communication that conveys the bravery of birth mothers. We believe birth mothers are heroes and adoption can be a beautiful thing.
BraveLove.org is a platform of stories, messages, reliable content and resources for adoption professionals, birth parents, adoptive parents and even those considering their options when faced with an unplanned pregnancy.
The idea of BraveLove began with a small group of people working directly with a local pregnancy resource center in Dallas. They witnessed their clients weren’t considering adoption as an option when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. This observation was consistent with the National Council for Adoption’s Fact Book which says 2% of women faced with an unplanned pregnancy choose adoption. So often the brave act of placing a baby for adoption is viewed in a negative light, when in reality it is a selfless, difficult, and loving act a birth mother can make for her child.
BraveLove’s Board of Directors evolved from that original group and is currently comprised of men and women from across Texas. Board Directors range from a birth mother, adoptive mother, business consultants, financial analysts, philanthropists, marketers, to local citizens in the community who are working hard to use their talents to make an impact.
BraveLove is here to change the way our culture thinks about adoption so that it’s normalized as a viable and common path for those in unplanned pregnancies. Through the creation and distribution of compelling media and messaging, we aim to erase any shame surrounding adoption and instead show how adoption can be an amazing act of love and bravery.
