Happy Mothers' Day - The Month of May

In Haiti, a mother is the person with whom the child grows up – birth mother, grandmother, sister, Aunt, friend of the family or people at the orphanage. Overtime, a child may have several mothers and eventually no mother at all. Although in Haiti Mother's Day is the last Sunday in May, for the entire month of May we would like to send a special acknowledgement to Haitian mothers for their roles in Haitian family life. In Haiti it is a tradition to wear a flower in honor of your mother on Mother's Day.
