This day was created by a group of woman in Seattle Washington in 1990.
Many, if not all Birthmothers will say that Mothers day is one of the hardest days for them. I know that for my it has been a hard day for the last 3 years. Knowing birthmothers have a day to celebrate and be remember for their selfless sacrifice has helped ease the pain, but doesnt completely take it all away.
Yes I know this time time year I will be celebrating my first Mothers day with my little family but it doesnt mean I won't feel the pain of not havin my angel with me, but I always remember the gift I was able to give Lynzie, the gift of being a MOM herself and having that opportunity to raise her child and have an eternal family. I am grateful for them and forever will be grateful and never forgot my little angel on Mothers day.
My sweet husband made sure this was a special Birthmothers day for, especially since he had to work and The Allens are on the eastcoast. My day started off very relaxing, I got to sleep in, the house was already cleaned(braden did that during the week) I recieved my favorite flowers and candy and soda, then meet up for lunch at a little cafe in Gold Canyon, on my way to lunch I recieved a much needed phone call from The Allens wishing me a Happy Birthmothers Day, my sweet Evelyn sang to me and told me I love you. My day was complete after this, no one could bring me down, then I was able to go shopping for soe ewell needed clothes, then Braden and I went to dinner at La Grande Orange in Phoenix, The Allens took me there for dinner on one of our many visits, then we went to the movies with our dear friends Kelcie and Taylor. My day was an amazing day, a day of relaxation and reflection of the past 2 1/2 years. I am grateful for all the love of my family and friends and the support for the past 2 1/2 years.
