National Birth Mother’s Day
National Birth Mother’s Day on the Saturday before Mother’s Day honors birth mothers offers a show of support. It is a day to recognize the biological mothers of adopted children.
Each birth mother’s experience is personal. While the day originated as a day of solidarity, education, and compassion, it has evolved and may be received with a mixture of emotions. It may also be viewed as a celebration of the life a birth mother has brought into the world and has chosen to share with another family. Children of adoption may even also participate in the day, celebrating their birth mothers and the life they gave them.
