Completing an international adoption requires enough paperwork to kill dozens of trees. And imagine dealing with the red tape of not only your own state and federal governments but also the government agencies of another country! All in an effort to obtain that final piece of paper that says this family you’ve been imagining can once and for all be together. Waiting and then waiting some more is often the most challenging aspect of an international adoption.
With Mother’s Day just a few days away, prospective adoptive moms may find this waiting game even more agonizing. Nearly every store has devoted a large space to trumpeting the joys of motherhood through cards and balloons. Online florists are blanketing our Facebook feeds with touching Youtube videos of children professing their love for their mothers. Even the most taciturn of sons will be planning a special day with their mother. All of this can be excruciatingly bittersweet for a waiting adoptive mom.
If you are close to an adoptive mom caught in this waiting game, consider honoring her this Mother’s Day with one of these five ideas to let her know she is in your thoughts.
Remembering and taking the time to honor an adoptive mom-to-be on Mother’s Day can relieve the sting of waiting for a brief moment. Perhaps you will even bring a smile to her face on a difficult day!
