Another Mother’s Day


I’ve written in the past about my uneasiness with Mother’s Day, and now I’ve found a new reason to dislike the holiday. One of my fellow Shetroit bloggers recently wrote about the origins of Mother’s Day – who knew it started out as a peace movement? Please take a minute to check it out!

This week, the Shetroit blog was full of Mother’s Day posts and there’s another story that I was truly excited about. One writer, described her mother’s pregnancy at the age of 17 and her┬ádecision┬áto parent despite suggestions otherwise. I think family preservation is the best option all around and I’d love to see more stories like this.
