Mother's Day for Motherless Daughters Call
May 13, 2023
Mother's Day weekend can bring up all kinds of feelings for a woman whose mother has died: sadness, longing, anger, loneliness, confusion, hopelessness, and more. We make room for all of them each year on their annual Mother's Day for Motherless Daughters call. Please join Hope Edelman and Claire Bidwell Smith on Saturday,
May 13 at 1 PT/4 ET for a FREE, virtual Mother's Day weekend event for motherless daughters. Women worldwide will come together in sisterhood and solidarity for 60 minutes of discussion and Q&A, a toast to all your moms, and their signature Circle of Remembrance. This year's topic is "Connecting with the Mother Energy Inside You." Hope and Claire will share ideas for self-nurturing and hear from members of the larger community. Stay for an additional 30 minutes of open conversation at the end to connect with women of all ages and backgrounds who share this profound life experience! Last year's event brought nearly 500 women from dozens of countries onto the screen together. You'll be welcomed as part of a sisterhood no one wanted to join, yet one that can offer you comfort and support this holiday weekend. This event is free and open to women who lost a mother to death at
any age. If you can't make it, be sure to register anyway, as they will send out the replay within 24 hours of
the event. Register, and you'll receive information by email about how to join the event on May 13.

Mother's Day 2022
Mother's Day reminds some people of losses they don't often speak of, like death, separation, divorce,
infertility, illness, unfulfilled longing, disability, estrangement, neglect, rejection, abuse, and abandonment.
If this day is difficult for you, for any reason, be extra kind and soft with yourself. Sending lots of love
and wishes for a gentler Mother's Day than expected to all feeling tender from loss.

If you are missing your mother or mother figure, you are invited to join "Motherless Daughter's" author
and coach, Hope Edelman, for the Worldwide Celebration of Remembrance To Honor Mothers Who Are No Longer Living event. Hope will share her annual Mother's Day letter to Motherless Daughters, and there
will be special guest speakers, a chance to win free giveaways, toast to all our mothers, and the
2nd International Circle of Remembrance. Join Hope Edelman, Claire Bidwell Smith, Kelly McDaniel,
and other guest speakers for this free event to explore:
How can we still honor our moms on this weekend?
How can we, if we have children, allow Mother’s Day to be about ourselves and her at the same time?
How can we find others who understand what this day represents for us?
Join in on May 7, 2022 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST.
The call is one hour, with a 30-minute Open Discussion period afterward for sharing stories about our moms.

Mother’s Day often reminds people of losses they don't often speak of, like the mom who neglected, reject, abused or abandoned them. Moms are not supposed to leave or hurt their children, prefer substance addiction or a romantic relationship instead of their kids. Unfortunately, many do.
Perhaps a son or daughter had a wonderful mother who has died, is dying, or suffers from a disease that
has stolen the mom they were from them, and they are missing her on every level imaginable.
Many moms are grieving a child or children that died, included mothers who've lost adult children, teens, infants
at birth or by miscarriage. The hole in their hearts forever exquisitely tender and incomprehensibly deep.
Mothers who are estranged from their kids and/or their child has an addiction, mental illness, severe disability, or has rejected them or their family may ache for a call or visit home or the restoration of health and/or sobriety.
Some dream of being a mom but carry the heavy grief of that unfulfilled longing, whether due to
infertility, past abortion, miscarriage, medical conditions, or the fact that the family and/or marriage
they dreamed of never materialize.
If Mother’s Day is a difficult day for you for one of these causes, or for any reason, we acknowledge
your loss, sadness and pain. Your feelings are valid and real. It's okay not to be okay. Please be extra
kind and gentle with yourself today.
For all of you who are missing a special person in your life on Mother's Day, and every day you are not alone.
