Mother's Day for Special Need Moms

Special Day for Special Mom

Special Love for Moms of Special Need Children on Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is a celebration of life, a day to celebrate the life of your mother has given you, to celebrate the life you have had with her.

Mother’s Day: A celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March or May. The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia.

As the Mother’s Day just passed, we can’t help thinking about the moms and their special need children, born with disabilities, who are intellectually or developmentally delayed and who don’t know that its Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the unadulterated, unconditional, ever-present, always forgiving, always soothing, irrepressible love of all moms. It’s a time when children of all ages do what they can to shoe their moms how much they mean to them. All moms relish these small gestures like hand-made card, poems, the candy, the flowers, the gifts and hold their children’s efforts no matter how small, dear to their hearts forever.

But in case of a Special Care child and mother relationship, there is an absence of this celebration. Although there is a strong bond between the child and mother. As for the child the mother is all in all and complete world to him/her, and vice versa.  But it is sad that the child never had the joy of writing personal messages to their mom, and their mom had never experience the joy of receiving them and keeping them to be cherished in the future.

Is it for this reason, it’s a humble request to all who know child and mother of children with special need and care, not to forget to make sure you reach out to them and celebrate them for the amazing people they are for Mother’s Day. Not only for them, but also for their children, who can’t fully express how much they truly love and appreciate their mothers.


Following is the list made by one of our associate who is a full time taking care for her special need child.
  1. Sleeping In:  For some special need moms, lack of sleep is a lifestyle. So on Mothers Day, Let the Mom Sleep in. Please do not DISTURB.
  2. No Poop Duty for the Day: Get a replacement for the day.
  3. A Date with Husband: Get some time out with your loving husband and spend some quality time again.
  4. Time Alone: Life is too busy and messy, there is too much to do and too less of a time. Gift yourself a time alone to cherish some things you would like to do for yourself.
  5. Clean House: Call for some help for cleaning the house
  6. Take Out: Go out, order and eat in a restaurant for a change.
