A Message for Mothers on Mother’s Day from an Abandoned Daughter

I would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers out there that are doing to their best to be good mothers and who are loving their children.

My mother gave me away at age 13. Instead of keeping me, she choose to keep my step father – the man who molested me as a little girl. In fact, my mother still is with him and has nothing to do with me, nor with my daughters – her grandchildren.

So I know what it is like to not have the love of a mother. I know the struggles of being alone in the world without family. I know how hard it is to be in this world without being loved, without guidance, without compassion, without support, without caring hugs, without someone to wipe my tears, without someone to turn to for advice, and without all of those things that mothers give to their kids. I know what it is like for your mother to choose another person over you .. I know that pain.

When a mother abandons her child, there is much healing that needs to happen. Life is already challenging enough, and then when you have to deal with that rejection and lack of support — life can be almost unbearable. I remember how hard it was and how at times even now it’s challenging having to do it all alone without parents. That pain of that abandonment never really goes away.

So I wanted to send a special thank you to all of the moms out there that persist through all the hard days, stay awake all of those sleepless nights and continue to love, be compassionate, hug, and support their children. I can only imagine that those hugs are so special. 🙂

Keep up the love and continue to support cause your children really need it. Make sure they feel like they are so loved. They will be better off with your love than without it. And if you are a mother that has left your children, please find a way to return. They really really need you. They need your love.
