From Rheyanne Weaver of www.empowher.com:
I never knew there was such a thing as Bereaved Mother’s Day until last month, when I lost my first child before he was even born.
I had searched for any online groups and pages dedicated to losing a child, clinging on to any reminder that I wasn’t alone in this horrible situation, and that I would someday try again.
Eventually I stumbled upon this little-known remembrance day.
Although May 1st, Bereaved Mother’s Day, is not an official holiday, one thing is for certain. With or without a holiday, mothers will never forget the loss of a child, and it can be especially painful around a major holiday — Mother’s Day — that focuses on mothers of living children.
