Today many kids will come home with a card or craft from school for their biomom for Mother’s Day. It can be hurtful if there isn’t one for you. In this case, remember that the kids are innocent. There can be lots of reasons why they haven’t created a card or craft for you. Maybe they didn’t think of you, maybe they didn’t have time, maybe they didn’t know they had an option of making one for you, maybe they felt it would be a betrayal to their biomom.
No matter the reason, it can be hurtful. My recommendation is to remind yourself that your feelings are human and you are completely entitled to them. Acknowledge your feelings- “I feel hurt/left out/forgotten…” and try to release that energy.
