Happy Mother’s Day

In memory of my mom and all the mothers that are no longer with us, you will always be a part of us and we missed you dearly.

I think what makes this day possible and special are the children or some now adults…Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.

  1. Happy Mother’s Day Nye. Those little girls are really smiling for their mommies:)) And the Hmong boy is looking cool as can be for his mommy.

    1. Thanks Vikki, a very special Happy Mother’s Day to you also. All the girls are very special, and also the Hmong boy, his mom is very proud of him I could tell. 🙂

  2. Yes, I miss my my mother Helen Marie Groscup so much. Thanks for keeping her memory alive.

  3. I’m shocked when I read about the 5 year old mother. What shocked me is not her pregnancy, but WHO is the father, and what kind of a monster did this to a 5 year old??? Her pregnancy meant that someone molested and raped her. Sigh.

    HAPPY Mother’s Day.

    1. lady0fdarkness, she never revealed the father of the child, nor the circumstances of her impregnation, but her father was arrested on suspicion of rape and incest, but was later released due to lack of evidence, kind of sad when you hear about teenage pregnancy, but of a 5 years old is shocking to hear.
