At the same time, it’s hard to be reminded that lots of other people won the biological mom lottery that you lost. What I have found is that many more people are motherless than you’d think. (We’re an unusually happy bunch, especially those who took an active decision to cut an awful biological mother out of our lives.) So if you don’t have a biological mother – or you just don’t want anything to do with the one life dealt you – don’t despair. You’re not alone, and you can still be happy for those children and mothers who have a dynamic you haven’t experienced. MY Mother’s Days are always happy. Share your story with those you trust and you’ll be amazed at the support you can both give and receive.
