My memory may be bad, but didn't Arwen's mother die? That's the vibe I got anyway.

Both his human parents die, but he gets adopted by a gorilla. I don't know if it counts to say he doesn't have a mother--not a human mother, no, but he does have a gorilla mother.
She was the only mother he really knew, so I would argue that yes, she was his mother. She doesn't get killed off in the Disney version, but his father does.
