The Post Adoption Journey 2023 Cohort


 

APPLICATIONS FOR OUR 2023 BIRTHMOMS TODAY | THE POST ADOPTION JOURNEY COHORT ARE OPEN.

PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION.

On Your Feet Foundation is thrilled to partner with Kim Noeth and her incredible program, Birthmoms Today. The 2023 Cohort will work with Kim from February 15 - December 15. Participants will meet monthly in a virtual group setting with Kim and each participant will have one 1:1 meeting with Kim.

Are you struggling with communication?

Together we can develop boundaries and communication strategies to equip you in navigating post-adoption communication. 

Are you in Reunion and Afraid of the Enormous Pressure You Feel To Show Up Perfectly?

So many of the feelings come back when you are in this stage. Stuff you thought you worked past, and suddenly, you are that vulnerable version of yourself again. We can do this big beautiful work together.

Are you afraid you will never find a partner who can accept and support your adoption experience?

Together we are going to learn the powerful actions that will move you from feeling guilty and unworthy to finally feeling acceptance and peace.

Afraid you will wake up and hurt this much every day and nothing will ever really get any better?

Together we can reframe and redefine your adoption story and remove the blocks that keep you from moving forward in your life.


MEMBERSHIP INCLUDES:

  • Monthly Zoom Group Coaching Calls with Kim Noeth, birth mom and CEO of Birth Moms Today to explore the different stages of the post-adoption relationship.
  • Each member receives a 1-1 personalized coaching call for specific coaching on a difficulty they are currently navigating.

WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THE POST-ADOPTION JOURNEY?

  • Moms who need support and want to learn specific tools and skills for finding peace with their adoption experience.
  • There are many benefits to embarking on the post-adoption journey. For one, it can help to provide a sense of peace and closure for mothers who have placed their children for adoption.
  • It can also be a transformative experience that helps moms to do their own healing and become better equipped to have healthy relationships with their children and adoptive parents.
  • Additionally, The Post-Adoption Journey Program can help moms to impact the world in big ways. By sharing their stories and experiences, moms can help to raise awareness about adoption and the challenges that come with it. They can also provide support and guidance to other moms who are facing similar challenges.
  • Ultimately, the post-adoption journey is an opportunity for birth mothers to Heal, Transform, and Impact the world around them.
