Birthmother’s Day is today – what is it?

Did you know today is Birthmother’s Day? (It’s always the Saturday before Mother’s Day.)

Birthmother’s Day is not a holiday recognized by general society, perhaps only celebrated by birthmothers themselves. Many people aren’t aware of what goes through a woman’s mind and heart as she faces the hardest decision she’ll ever make. The 5-star rated story, Darkest Dawn (ISBN: 0966134214 / Publisher: Wizard of Words) by Bonny Brookes, beautifully portrays a birthmother’s selfless act. This book, filled with raw emotion, warms the heart as it encapsulates the truest form of unconditional love a woman can ever offer – giving up her own child for the child’s sake and the benefit of fulfilling a childless couple’s greatest desire.

Darkest Dawn, a 5-star rated book about a birthmother’s road to choosing adoption.

Birthmother’s day was actually created in 1990 by a group of birthmothers around Seattle in an effort not only to educate, but more importantly, to honor and remember. Darkest Dawn teaches us all the reason to celebrate and recognize birthmothers on Saturday, May 10th.
