Let's Help To Reunite Mothers with Their Children



Twenty three years could not come between me and my mother.  She lost me as a baby (long story) and found me 23 years later. It is an amazing story because she found me three months before I was about to leave my country permanently to become a citizen of the United States of America. 
I still can't believe how amazing God is in all this sometimes. Just knowing my mother has healed an open wound in my heart. I know it has helped me in my life as a mother just to know her. We have since then built a bond and do have a good relationship. 

Sadly she is far away in another country and I can't get to do the little things with her. I don't get to share my children with her. It hurts my heart to know my children are missing out on her love, on her life. 

We do visit, but it is hard to do this because of not having the money to travel. All I can do is keep up contact by email, online and the phone when we can afford to.

I have dreams of her living down the street from me.  I can dream. Life is always unpredictable.  

I haven't entered my story because my mother live in a different country and I'm not sure I'd qualify for this venture.

And so this is why I wanted to share this with you.


Procter & Gamble, continues to celebrate moms everywhere with "Thank You Mom Reunions", a nationwide contest to reunite Moms and their children for milestone family moments like graduations and birthdays which they otherwise might have missed.  

Each month through November, P&G is providing the opportunity for 15 lucky Moms to travel home to share a memory with family 

Thank You Mom Reunions” will bring together 105 moms with their children, who are unable to do so on their own.  (15 per month for a 10 month campaign.) 

Since Mother's Day, participants have been submitting their stories online to be considered for a reunion with their Mom or Mother figure for the June contest.  Thirty finalists have been selected and voting begins NOW! where consumers will choose the 15 winners.

Winners will receive a $1000 travel voucher and portable digital video camera to capture their reunion and are encouraged to share the video on ThankYouMom.com
