This Mother’s Day weekend let us also honor the women who chose not to have
children, those who wanted but were unable to have children and those who are
trying everything possible and would give anything they have to become a mother.
And let us remember those mothers who have lost a child and live on with broken
hearts. We know the passion for mothering is often expressed in surprising,
unexpected and all kinds of beautiful and loving ways. And we know that
expression of love is just as important, just as powerful and just as essential
as any love that exists.
