We can claim it's a Hallmark holiday, but Mother's Day can be emotionally challenging for many mothers who have babies who are no longer in their arms. That's why the bereaved mothers of the world have claimed their own holiday, on the Sunday before Mother's Day, which stands alone to celebrate those mothers who are doing some of the most challenging parenting out there.
Empty Arms parent Megan Griffin, along with parent Caroline Martin, will present a beautiful brunch and memorial project to bring us together on this day to celebrate our motherhood and honor our babies.
What: Please join us for the EABS International Bereaved Mother's Day Brunch, May 5. In honor of our children gone too soon, EABS invites mothers (and any other people you would like to have with you) to join us in creating a personalized mosaic stepping stone for your baby, or babies.
Date & Time: Sunday, May 5, 2019: 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Please RSVP by April 19 to the Facebook event or Megan Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where: The Boathouse at Brunelles Marina, 1 Alvord St. South Hadley, MA.
Brunch will be provided. As long as the weather cooperates we will be in the tent along the shore of the Connecticut River. In the event of inclement weather we will be in the event space inside the restaurant.
