A real mom or a non-mom?

I am sort of embarrassed to post this link as I thought that America was much further along than it seems to be on this contest.

But, I want people to be aware of this so that they can call, write, or whatever to let these businesses know that all Adoptive moms are REAL moms and love being REAL moms to ALL of their children, those who came to us through adoption or by birth. I guess there is no better day that Mother's Day to let our voices be heard.

My name is Jennifer, and I work with Edelman ( 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 the concerns expressed, Teleflora immediately changed the name of the “Non-Mom” category to “Adopting Moms,” which has already been posted on the “semi-finalist” page at

I thought you might want to know. On behalf of Teleflora, I hope you have a very happy Mother’s Day.
