Having your mother walk you down the aisle is your personal decision.  I think if you can forgive your mother, become close, and actually WANT her to do so, that’s for you to decide.  Your friends should support you in whatever decision you make.


Your mother acknowledged her mistakes, which takes a lot of courage and willingness to accept her own faults.  Although I did not have the same experience, my mother also apologized for things she felt like could have been done differently on her part recently.  I think it’s important as an adult and as someone who is about to start her own family to remember who helped you become the person you are, good and bad.

I think it’s very admirable that you would like your adoptive mother to walk you down the aisle.  Good for you!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Yes, you went through a lot during your childhood and you’re relationship with your mom may not have always been great.  However, I think that you and your mother have moved past that together.  Since you have forgiven her and feel close now, I think you should ask her to walk you down the aisle if that is what you want to do.  I don’t think you should worry about what your friends say.  Good luck!
