“It’s not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one who is most adaptable to change.” Mary Ellen Collins, Founder and Executive Director of the Motherless Daughters Ministry, quotes Charles Darwin when summing up her presentation about our African American sisters. They represent all of us who have survived the unspeakable change of being without our mothers.
In the midst of crisis, we seek relief, comfort, and resolution. When the situation cannot be fixed, we look for solace. Survivors find a way to adapt and get through one day at a time. In recognition of Black History Month in February and Women’s History Month in March, we present the plight of our black sisters, who were motherless daughters learning to survive.
The Motherless Daughters Ministry serves women who have lost or missed the nurturing provided by a mother. Whether they are biological, adoptive, surrogate, or unlabeled, losing the person who fills that need is devastating. We provide a community of support for all women because mother loss penetrates every dividing line created by mankind.
