Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Dear Friend,

We may use the legal term to describe what we know about this child’s family – this is her adoptive mother, and this is her biological mother. But for the child, both of them are “mama”. Mama, mama, mama, a thousand times mama, an unchangeable word mama, a life long’s mama. Not only the one that once gave a life, but also the always life giving mama

On this Mother’s Day, as we reflect our joys and hardships along the way of becoming better mothers, we may secretly expect something more than a usual “mama”. We may be thinking of a tender kiss from our child, a handwritten thank you letter, or perhaps a rose of our favourite color. While some of these may happen, some may not, the passions and the duties of being a mother are unchanged. The power of love itself is the best reward.

There’s an interesting Chinese proverb – 逢山开路,遇水造桥 (Féng shān kāi lù, yù shuǐ zào qiáo), means, to build a road wherever mountains divide, to build a bridge wherever water flows. This is just like a mother’s efforts of striving for a child’s happiness and fulfillment. And wherever their happiness leads, wherever your happiness goes.

At The Mothers’ Bridge of Love (MBL), we are also building bridges across cultures, especially mothers, and we are genuinely motivated by the love and stamina of mother like YOU that makes a difference everyday.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Yours sincerely,
The Mothers’ Bridge of Love (MBL)
