22 years later and today is still one of the hardest days out of the year.
So many birth parents out there are well intentioned and selflessly relinquish their rights to their children because they arent ready to be parents or they cant provide their children with the necessities they need and deserve. Other birth parents have their rights involuntary terminated. Sadly, there are also birth parents who never had the intention of relinquishing their rights and had their children taken from them as a result of corruption, kidnapping or other horrible injustices. But there are birth parents or birth mothers like mine, who choose to abandon their children for no reason.
The things she never said. The things she took with her when she left me behind, are keys to the mystery that will never be solved. The action of leaving me, of abandoning me, will be forever be a source of pain and loss in my life. But, the words that I imagine where in her heart and on her lips when she left me are the words that give me hope. I hold onto the things she never said with the belief that those words were filled with love and sadness, pain and promise, and hope for the dreams she had for me.
The words that I hold closest to my heart are the words she never said.
Hold your loved ones close and the people who despise you closer. One day they might just be your family.
I love you more than the bad days ahead of us. I love you more than the many fights we may have. I love you more than any distance that will ever come between us. I love you more than any obstacle that might get in our way. I love you.
