Happy Birthmother's Day...May 9th

It is sad to say that this is my business and so much of my life, that I am ashamed to say that I was not aware of this special day coming up. I thought I would make a post and maybe others who are not aware of the special meaning to this Saturday, the day before Mother's Day. Tonight as I was reading our local newspaper there was an article about Birthmother's. Even though some may have children now, they really never felt very good about being honored on this day. So a group of birthmother's joined together and decided that the Saturday prior to our so called Mother's Day would be Birthmother's Day! God bless these group of women who felt empowered to speak out and do something to honor themselves and so many others. The article says that the group of birthmothers come together and light candles and read stories and poems. Things have changed so much over the years.
I know you have heard me mention Tammy, Denise, Karen, Melissa and Amanda in prior post. Probably, I do not give them enough credit. My dream one day is to sit side by side with them in church on Mother's Day with my children and let them know personally how special they have blessed my life. Yes, they do know because we have met or talk on the phone before. Sometimes I want to publicly acknowledge them because in our society they can but not always be looked at in a negative way.
Please if you know of anyone who has made the sacrifice to give their heart and their child to someone else, please let them know how special they are this Saturday. They may not even know this is THEIR day, it is fairly new. If you don't know anyone personally, then maybe just offer up a prayer on their behalf that what ever they are feeling will be positive and let them be overwhelmed with the feeling of what they did has blessed others.
Again, if anyone is reading this blog and knows of anyone that is a birthmother you could leave a comment blessing that person (you don't have to mention names, you can just mention initials.) It could just be a special blessing sent their way.
If you are a birthmother reading this, know that whom ever you have blessed loves you for the gift you have given. I can only hope that you as a birthmother feel a healing and wholeness in your heart for the life you chose to share.

God Bless: JR my son's birth mother. Also: SA, RA, CM high school friends who chose life over their own "rights to choose" as so many politician refer to the life ending act of abortion.


Forever grateful to those women who allow for families to exist where nature did not.

Thanks for posting about this. I did not know about this day. I too have a precious gift from a birth mother. I will drop her a card to honor her on this day.

Love your blog.

I am so thankful for Maria who gave me our precious son Dawson. Because of her love for him, she trusted us enough to let us be his parents. I now can look forward to mother's day and not dread that it is coming. I love you Maria more than I could ever put into words and I tell Dawson all of the time that his MamaMia loves him very much. I love you Maria and pray God's blessings over you daily.

I had no clue as to Birthmother's Day. I am so thankful for K, A, R, and L. These young women, two of them young girls, are very special blessings to our family. Thank you for chosing life for these precious lives. Any of these four met the criteria for aborting, but very unselfishly chose to give life.

May God bless you and uphold you an this special day.

What a marvelous idea!!!

I want to mention HMJS, a very special and wonderful woman who honored her baby's life and made a California couple's dream come true!

I am so very proud of her!

H is now the mom of four beautiful and amazing children with a wonderful husband. God has blessed her love and obedience.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I too am thankful to your wonderful birth mothers, Cathy, who gave you the most incredible family. Birth mom's have made the biggest and best sacrifice. I am sure our Heavenly Father holds them all especially close to His heart!

God bless them all!!!

Love, Kathy
