SPOILER ALERT: IF YOU ARE A MEMERE, AVO OR AUNTIE TO MY KIDS, PLEASE ACT SURPRISED WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE SAME GIFT ON SUNDAY :) OR READ NO FURTHER.
This Sunday, mothers will be celebrating the joy of motherhood. Though joyous for many, Mother's Day can prove to be heart wrenching and difficult for others. We hold my childrens' birth mothers in our hearts each and every day, but the Saturday before Mother's Day is a specific day set aside to honor them. We have an open adoption with the birth families of our children and for us this means we have direct contact with them through email, mail, and/or visits. We feel blessed to have them as an ongoing part of our lives and wouldn't want it any other way.
We put together a "pamper yourself" jar for each birth mother with personalized artwork and sent along some photos as well.
Dear Birth Mothers,
Today we honor you for your bravery and selfless love. We thank you from the depths of our beings for the decisions you have made. Know that you are special and in our hearts as well as in the hearts of our E and Little Miss. You are loved!
"A Birthmother puts the needs of her child above the wants of her heart"
