It takes a very special kind of woman to become a mother. There are not enough words in the English language – or any other known language – to truly describe how amazing a mother is. For, being a mother, is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs a woman will ever experience.

The month of May is a time where we can celebrate all mothers. We have a weekend dedicated to honoring both birth mothers and adoptive mothers. However, it’s important to remember that being a mother doesn’t stop there. It’s 24/7. 365 days a year. If you are a mother, you know how exhausting that feels. We want to share with you some empowering quotes about adoptive mothers that can help give you the strength to keep going during those rougher times.

“People ask me. ‘What about gay adoptions? Interracial? Single Parent?’ I say. ‘Hey fine, as long as it works for the child and the family is responsible.’ My big stand is this: Every child deserves a home and love. Period.” — Dave Thomas

“By choice, we have become a family, first in our hearts, and finally in breath and being. Great expectations are good; great experiences are better.” — Richard Fischer

Adoptive Mothers about Motherhood

“Anyone who doesn’t have experience with adoption wonders, ‘Does love for a child come through DNA?’ I knew it didn’t.” — Katherine Heigl

“There is no perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply.” — Elder M. Russel Ballard

Quotes about Adoptive Mothers

A mother’s heart goes far beyond blood. Beyond DNA. Mothers share an inexplicable bond with each of their children. From the day her son or daughter is born, whether they are biological or not, a mother loves her child unconditionally. She always seeks to support her son or daughter the best way she can, and keep their best interests at heart. Mothers are the most incredible women we’ll ever know. They deserve all the love, respect and honor we can give each and every one of them. Not just during the month of May either, but all year-round.

We hope these empowering quotes about adoptive mothers encourage you on both your good days and bad days, and remind you of just how amazing and valued you are as a mother.
