Happy Mother's Day...

Mother's Day is approaching, but did you know that the Saturday before Mother's day is Birth Mother's Day or First Mother's Day? We ♥ birth moms especially our birth moms... Bri & Shanna, it is because of them that I get to celebrate Mother's Day. I get teary eyed just thinking about the miracle it is that I get to be called mom. I am beyond blessed and not only feel grateful but privledged to be mom to these TWO beautiful kids!
Families Supporting Adoption is having a birth mother appreciation dinner to honor all birth mothers in our area. If you are a birth mom and would like to come, please e-mail me for more details, sunshineinmysoul_33(at)yahoo(dot)com, we would LOVE to honor you Saturday night!
FSA is a national organization with chapters all over the country. These chapters provide information about adoption and support to those associated with the adoption process, including birth mothers, birth fathers and adoptive couples.
Birth Mother's Day (or First Mother's Day) has been observed on the Saturday before Mother's Day since 1990 when it was first celebrated in Seattle. There are an estimated 6 million adoptees in the United States.
So HAPPY Mother's day to ALL mom's out there!
