I lost a child on dec 23/03 He was my first child. He was still born. It was a very hard day for me. That fallowing mothers day I was at church and they had a service for all the mothers for mothers day. All of the mothers recieved a carnation. I didnt consider myself a mother so I never took one. After the service as I was walking out a friend gave me a carnation and said your still a mother. To a baby in heaven! I would like to say Happy mothers day to all the mothers out there tht have lost a child. Just because your child isnt in the world any more you are still a mother!

I am very sorry for your loss and yes, you are still a mother. My mother lost her first born son (my oldest brother) on April Fool's Day of 2005. What a joke that was. He was 50 years old and diagnosed with cancer on March 15th of the same year. 17 days later he was gone. My mother still has my other brother and me but she was his mother first and I cannot imagine how awful Mother's Day must be for her now. For fifty years she was the mother of three and there are only two. It's not any easier for my dad on Father's Day either. I have four children of my own and I don't know what I would do if anything ever happened to any of them.

My mother had a baby die when he was just 24 hours old from a lung disorder. This was in 1968 when the medical technology wasn't very advanced. Today, Babies recover from that disorder because MD's know how to treat it. But my point is, that more than 40 years later, my mother will tell you that she has 4 children. 3 boys and a girl. Yes, you are still a mother, regardless of whether that child is on earth or Heaven. Happy Mother's Day to you too!

Wow! That was a very thoughtful gesture from a friend. And he/she is right. You are still a mother. So this mothers day, I'll say "Happy Mothers' Day to you!" I also believe that being a mother is not just bearing and rearing a child. There are lots of childless people out there who devoted their lives making the existence of others more bearable. Others choose to dedicate their time to their job and made a lots of differences in others' lives. So them also, I say, "Happy Mothers' day!"
