Adoption STAR is hosting its annual "Birth Mother's Day Celebration" from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the at the North Buffalo Community Center, 203 Sanders Road, Buffalo.
"Birth Mother's Day" is held on the day before Mother's Day. Adoption STAR recognizes a birth mother's motherhood as one of love and connection. A separate day allows all of the feelings to be acknowledged, especially a celebration of the gift of life they have given to a child. Birth mothers who have had other children express feeling torn between the Mother's Day celebration of the children they are raising and the memory of the child who is absent.
This event is open to all birth mothers and adoptive families in the community. One does not have to be affiliated with Adoption STAR to attend this celebration.
RSVP to Sue at Adoption STAR (716-639-3900) to attend. Email [email protected] with questions.
