"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Thank you to everyone who wrote and called into NBC. The adoption community is definitely tight knit and we ROCK!

NBC has changed the name of the category to The Adopting Mom. You can click here to take a peek at it yourself.

In addition, the following comment was left under my initial posting about this issue:

Grace Chang said...
My name is Grace and I work with Edelman (www.Edelman.com), on behalf of Teleflora’s “America’s Favorite Mom” program. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about this issue. After closer examination, Teleflora recognized how this may have been offensive to moms who have adopted children… moms who are indeed real moms in every sense of the word. This show of insensitivity was in no way intended and Teleflora offers its deepest apology.

It was always Teleflora’s intent to salute and celebrate all moms. Please know that in response to the concerns expressed, Teleflora immediately changed the name of the “Non-Mom” category to “Adopting Moms,” which has already been posted at AmericasFavoriteMom.com.

On behalf of Teleflora, I would like to offer my sincerest best wishes to you on this Mother’s Day.

Hmmm...I sent an e-mail but they didn't write me back. Mine is a little short though.
I say great job to the families who sent e-mails and got that off of the internet!

I don't understand why we can't just be in the same category as "moms". They changed the category.. but we are still listed with neighbors and grandparents!!

I'm sitting here pondering if anybody on that specific marketing team for Teleflora's Mothers Day event is actually a mom. Hmmmmm? I would hope it was a group of very young individuals (not a parent at this point in their lives) that were coming up with these titles because us Non-Moms wouldn't have let this happen ;)

It would be really sad if these people were Christians....children of God that He adopted. Sad to say, people do not understand adoption.
