We often think of adoption as a happy occasion, filled with love and heartwarming moments — and it often is. For the adoptive parents. Rarely do we consider the heartbreak on the other side of adoption or the heart-wrenching decision of a birth mother to give her child a better life.
The Oxygen Network will be shedding light on what adoption is like from the view of birth mothers with its premiere on July 23 of the new TV documentary series, “I’m Having Their Baby.” The series follows several birth mothers as they work through the difficult decision of putting their babies up for adoption and maneuver through the adoption process. Some mothers already have children they are raising, some are teenagers, and one married woman is giving away a baby that is not her husband’s.
