Mama’s Day Our Way: Mother’s Day Cards for Non-Traditional Families

The Mother’s Day card selection at your local Walgreens or CVS is pretty limited. Yes, there are plenty of pretty cards with flowers, butterflies and a plethora of pastels, but the cards are generally very traditional and celebrate the “traditional” family or mother. But what about the rest of the mothers – or mother figures – out there. Where are their cards? The non-profit Strong Families has created a beautiful collection of e-cards for “Mama’s Day Our Way.”  Check out some of the cards celebrating all sorts of moms right here:

  • Chosen 1 of 10

    Sometimes your mother figure isn't the one that gave birth to you. Instead sometimes you choose your own mother. This card celebrates those mothers that may not be blood relations but who are just as important.
