A Birth Mother’s Day Planner
“Birth Mother’s Day and the Birth Mother’s Day Planner grew out of my own journey after losing my infant daughter in a closed adoption in 1978. It grew out of the experience of finding myself alone on a journey through a wilderness of grief. I was a mother, yet was not seen as a mother by those around me or those who were parenting my daughter. For many years I grieved in secret and felt myself to be invisible.”
Yet even then, through tears, I remembered the great joy I had felt at my daughter’s birth. It was an experience of triumph, transcendence, and ecstasy that became my personal yardstick of joy. And so it was, I always observed her birthday as a day of celebration for both of us-of birth and birth-giving-even in the years of all day grief.
