Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - May 8, 1994, Kokomo, Indiana t4 Kokomo Tribune Sunday May Advice Advice Advice Advice Advice Advice Dear Abby Deaf Abby Enclosed is a urtin you wrote many years ago 1 kept it because it had a very spe cial significance in my life I am signing my name and address so you will know 1 am sincere but for obvibus reasons please do not use it Anonymous Dear Abbyj I hope you will use my letter on Mothers Day as a tribute to all those brave unselfish mothers who gave up their babies I am a new mother whose heart is overflowing with gratitude to a 15yearold girl 1 have never seen I understand that she is a beauti ful intelligent person who became pregnant accidentally and decid ed on her own that her baby should have a better life than she was able to provide so she put up the baby for adoption As soon as our son is able to understand 1 will tell him about his birth mother and what a courageous person she is In the meantime 1 pray daily her wellbeing and good fortune Sign me Dear Blessed thank you for an appropriate letter for Mothers Day 1 agree that giving up a child for its own good is the ultimate in unselfishness God bless those mothers who did Dear Abby My mother just fin ished reciting the same speech she recites every year just before Mothers Day It begins Now please dont throw your money away on a gift for me I dont need Abby I know my mother does nt need anything but I enjoy giy ing her presents and it takes the pleasure out of it for me when she takes this attitude 1 wish youd tell mothers that children of all ages enjoy giving gifts on Moth ers Day so please accept them graciously Somebodys daugh ter Dear Daughter Dont blame your mother Her attitude is typi cal of most mothers They dont Want their children to deny them selves anything in order tb buy a gift know When I was a child 1 recall vividly my own beloved mother saying Please dont buy me afjy presents I have every thing I So instead of buy ing a gift I gave her something money couldnt buy I wrote a poem or a letter telling her how much I appreciated her Years later I realized how much they must have meant to her because after she died 1 found them rucked away among her souvenirs all neatly bound together with a rubber band She had saved every one of them Deaf Abby What is the signifi cance of wearing a single tion for Mothers Day Flower child Dear Chlldi A red carhatibn is worn to signify that ones mother is living A white carnation fies that ones mother is deceased There should also be an identify ing flower worn by those mothers whose chose motherhood by rear ing a foster child or stepchild And a special place in heaven awaits those mothers who choose a physically br mentally chal lenged child knowing that he or she has not only special needs but also requires a superabundance of love understanding and patience BUSINESS AND SERVICE DIRECTORY Run Your Ad In This Directory For Only Per Month Per Day JNFARI National Association UMBER
