Remembering Birthmothers on Mother’s Day
On Motherâ€™s Day, we celebrate the gift of motherhood. Our America World families includes those who celebrate Godâ€™s gift of motherhood through adoption as well as the birthmothers of the children that we are blessed to call our own through adoption. On Motherâ€™s Day, we thank God for the blessing of both adoptive and birth mothers. We ask you, Lord, to comfort birthmothers in their sorrow for the loss of their precious child in their lives; help them to feel peace in the knowledge that their sacrifice has made a difference in their childâ€™s life and in the lives of their adoptive families.
“The Lord will work out his plans for my life-
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
Donâ€™t abandon me, for you made me.” Psalm 138:8
