Mother’s Day is that second Sunday in May out of each year that all children are suppose to put their mothers on a pedestal and shower them with praise for raising them through the good and bad times.
But Ebony.com’s resident relationship expert Sil Lai Abrams says that today will be yet another Mother’s Day that she endures with a degree sadness. That’s because Abrams says that her mother was a non-factor in her life. And, unlike the moms who are being celebrated for being there when their children needed them most, Abrams says her mother abandoned she and her siblings during their adolescent years.

In her recent Ebony.com column titled, “My Mom Doesn’t Love Me,” Abrams writes that, as a “motherless child,” it makes her “cringe” that it is assumed every son and daughter has a mother who loves them. In fact, Sil Lai writes that her mom doesn’t much care for her. And when she and her mom were together, her words were not motherly. Actually, they were rather harsh.
