For The Mother Whose Child Was Taken

On this Mother’s Day, I am feeling a deep empathy for every mother that has lost custody of her child. I acknowledge the deep pain that a day like this one causes. She has lost a very real part of herself, though independently living. Her child is gone and yet she must go on – somehow.

Each day without her child is a painful reminder that the child yet lives with someone else the child must call mother. She may have unending fears about what is happening to her child, out of her sight and control. She may cry often, lonely silent tears that no one else can understand.

On this day, my heart sends love and understanding to each woman thus affected. Yours is the hardest part of a day when many of us are grateful for the mothers who gave of themselves that we might live.
