Birth and adoptive fathers are a big part of their child’s life and cannot be forgotten!

Ways to Celebrate Birth Father’s Day

Birth Father’s Day is the Saturday before Father’s Day. This allows for both adoptive and birth fathers to have a special day to celebrate them and their specific role in their child’s life. There are many ways to celebrate this special day.

  1. Start a tradition. There are so many things you can do with your birth father each year to celebrate. You can have something that you add to each year. Whether you add a photo to a photo album or write letters to add to a book that you can look at throughout the year.
  2. Go out somewhere. You can do things ranging from going out to dinner to going fishing each year. Just spending that quality time together can mean so much to everyone involved. Discuss what you all like to do, then you can all go plan to do it together.
  3. Talk about life and the adoption journey together. Something that your child will love to learn about is their adoption process. If they have their birth father in the picture, learning the process through his eyes will be special. Birth fathers sometimes get looked over, so being able to connect with and talk about experiences from his point of view will be interesting.

The options of how to celebrate birth fathers are endless. Birth fathers need to be reminded of how much they sacrificed for and how grateful everyone is of them. Small gestures on Birth Father’s Day can go a long way.

Your child will be grateful for their adoptive father just as much as you. He helps provide a nurturing environment, so he deserves a special day. He took on a very important role in your child’s life, and there are many ways to include your child in celebrating Father’s Day.

Celebrating Birth and Adoptive Fathers

It takes a village to raise a child, so making sure everyone involved knows they are loved and valued will be important. Not everyone can be a good father, and knowing that your adoptive and birth fathers take on their roles well is something to be grateful for. It is easy to focus more on the birth and adoptive mothers, but sometimes we need to focus on the fathers!
