International Bereaved Mother's Day



Mother's all over the world celebrate Mother's Day, but there are some mothers that have suffered the loss of a child.  A holiday meant to share love, respect and honoring of one's mother has turned into a day of grief for these mothers that have experienced such a loss.   



International Bereaved Mother's Day is a day of recognition for the strongest moms I know.  The loss of their child has made them no less a mom. The memory of your child lives through you. 

For these moms I encourage prayers and kind words.  I encourage empathy and mostly I encourage other mothers to be there for support.


"If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you.”
Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne)





If you or someone you know has experienced the loss of a child please know you are not alone.

  1. I didn't know about May 6th. I have a beautiful 29 yo daughter and a wonderful 14 yo son. Mother's Day is still a day that is very, very hard for me. I should also have a 24 yo son, he has been gone 22 years. Some days, like Mother's Day it is like that first day.
