I'm looking for input for an article from women or men who do NOT look forward to celebrating Mother's Day and/or Father's Day, who find it difficult for their own reasons (eg. couples unable to bear children, adoptive child, bad relationships with parent or child, single people who desire family life, and any other reasons). If you have experienced anything in this realm, can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org?
Tell me why it was/is difficult or painful for you and how you feel the body of Christ and/or the local church fellowship could recognize and adjust in order to promote healing for these painful situations? What have you have done personally to cope and help find healing for yourself?
I am seeking feedback from those who personally struggle with this (specifically not enjoying those special days), or from those who actively counsel others in this situation.
