Birth Mom Missions has all sorts of things planned for Birth mom's "weekend" like every year. We want you to know you are loved throughout the whole day and every other day too. So something will always be going on (via the facebook) Like you weill receive emails or surprises and you can talk ANYTIME of the day you want to a birthmother 1 or 100 on a community call. Radio show tonight to remind you and the world what tomorrow is. And that we don't (I dont) think I am too coll so I want my own day. The day, for me, is a chance for my daughter to know (wherever she is) that her bmom loved her enough to require an extra day just for her love.

I for one am glad that in 1988 a group of women created "Birth Mother's Day" as the day before Mother's day, every year (the yellow rose as our symbol too. more info on website..) So think about if you know anyone in your life that has been affected in some way by adoption (a lot of folks) and consider remembering them on a day when everyone else seems to have forgotten them. Not only the birth mother's, but the adoptive family, extended family, friends, and of course the adopted child can benefit from a little acknowledgement that it is OK to be a part of adoption and proud of it. It is such a taboo subject today and no one wants to bring it up or remember and they claim they never know what to say if they were to try. . (they will blame us if the wording is not proper or PC enough for them! That's fine...!) There are adoptive parent's who could use a card at any time, adoptive grandparents too.  There are cards I've made to give from AP's (adoptive parents) to a BM's (birth moms) OR for BM's to give to AP's, or AP's to give to "prospective birth mothers, OR birth grandparents to a birthmom or birthfather ) (When i say birth mother, I also am referring to first mother's ,natural mother or any other name you like to call them)
