This is my beautiful mother, Paula, and me last summer, fresh off the plane from Victoria, B.C., on our annual mother-daughter adventure, this time to Bacardi Island in the Dominican Republic!

My mother was very young, married and then divorced, trying to make a better life for me. But she couldn't and had to make the choice to put me up for adoption soon after this photo was taken.

As part of an OBHS contriution to a ROM exhibit, a family heirloom, a quilt belonging to my mother, was included. This photo reflects the caring and importance of bonds both tangible and intangible.

I was born and raised in this beautiful city of Toronto. For years my mom and I would say we should just get on the TTC and explore and so we did.

This photo was taken in 1981 in Delhi, India. We never celebrated mother's day in India. I think it is really nice to celebrate your mother every year. I plan to do something special for her this year.

I was little, not yet one, and already I was interested in everything. My mom looked at the camera, I looked elsewhere. Pretty typical of the mother-daughter relationship in general.

My husband took this shot of me and my daughter. Neither of us can remember what we are laughing about here, but every time we look at this picture we smile and feel the laughter again. Priceless!

I was three when this picture was taken. I had been really sick for some time and wasn't allowed to go outside. This was my first walk in the park with my mom. My eyes tear up every time I look at the pic.

his photo was taken on Ogunquit Beach in Maine in May 2010 on my mom's 85th birthday. It truly symbolizes the love and the physical closeness we shared for 50 years, for which I am so grateful.

That's Mom and me just before my college graduation ceremony in 1999. As a mature student in computer studies, I was often overwhelmed by the work demands. But Mom's steady pep talks kept me on track!

My father took this picture of my mother, my brother and myself on our way home from church. My mother always dressed so stylishly, especially on Sundays.

In January 2011, my daughter Tess and I headed off on a 7 day climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. It was a trip done on a dare - a challenge we celebrated at the top.

My four-year-old self wasn't exactly thrilled to be atop the temperamental (and lazy) pony named Ruby. But my ever-supportive mom somehow managed to keep me going. Kelowna, B.C., summer 1986.
