The Way of the Toddler: The Craziness of Modern Motherhood & the Spiritual Lessons I Learned from My Zen Masters in Diapers contains the Original Mission Statement for Motherhood. However, Leta has created a series of Mission Statements for Motherhood that speak to specific mother/child relationships. There is also a BLANK Mission Statement for Motherhood that can be purchased for you to write your own.
Each Mission Statement for Motherhood is written from the perspective of the mother speaking to both herself and her child. These Mission Statements encapsulate what we consider our core values as mothers and what we most want to pass on to our children. They are lovely gifts for any mother, at any stage along her journey of motherhood. Sometimes, as in the case of miscarriage, that journey lasts only a few short weeks. Often that journey takes us to the day we see our child marry and start their own family journey. The Mission Statement for Motherhood Series will include: * the ORIGINAL from The Way of the Toddler * BLANK Mission Statement for Motherhood (in the MSM format for you to fill out in your own words) * Mother/son * Mother/daughter * Mother/teenage son * Mother/teenage daughter * Birth mother/adoption/open * Birth mother/adoption/closed * Mother/adoption/within culture * Mother/adoption/international * Mother/miscarriage * Mother/gay son * Mother/gay daughter * Mother/death of child * Mother/marriage of son * Mother/marriage of daughter * Mother/child with learning disability * Mother/child with physical disability * Mother/child through fertility treatment * Mother/child/abortion “If you or someone you love is on the path of motherhood, one of these inspirational and beautifully designed prints will make a difference in your life. It is my heartfelt belief that having a Mission Statement for Motherhood in a place where we can see it every day is one of the most valuable things you can do for yourself as a mother.” --Leta Hamilton
