This paper echoes the claim of other prominent mother-theologians that the experience of mothering has been relegated to the sidelines of theology. Convinced that mothering can be a locus theologicus being a universal phenomenon essential to human family, this work examines how attention on migration can serve as an entry point for mothering studies in theology. It first surveys existing work on mothering in theology, followed by  hat has been done in other disciplines. A section that reviews some relevant works on migration theology reveals that there is indeed room for mothering  studies here. Thus, a proposal to look at migrant mothering as a spiritual experience located at the intersection of migration and mothering is offered.
