On the day before Mother's Day, birthmothers who placed their babies for adoption will gather for their own ceremony. Each has a unique and emotional story, as do their children and their adoptive families. Some gave birth in an era that shamed single moms. Some weren't given the choice to raise their child.  We'll talk hear from several birth mothers.

Guests: 

Eric Sandy, Managing Editor, Cleveland Scene 
Betsie Norris, Executive Director, Adoption Network Cleveland  
Bev Haettich, birthmother   
Amy Lomis, birthmother 
Karen Williams, birthmother 
Karen Kasler, Ohio Statehouse News Bureau Chief
