As I watched her watch me with her son I found myself feeling guilty.
How can I be so happy and she is so sad. She is praising God that he will
get the help he needs and she tells me Thank you over and over again.
I tell her that I will take care of him and I will make sure he goes to school..
She again thanks me. I'm not looking for thanks I'm just trying to let her
know that I will be a good mama to him.
In every picture I have of Joseph she is wearing a sterling silver necklace and
matching ear-rings she has it on today as well. She takes them off and hands them
to me and says I want you to have these... How can she give me anything else.
I cry and she cryes and we hug each other. I will never forget her embrace for as
long as I live. I will never forget the way she held our son for the last time and
told him "Jospeh I love you and I want you to grow up strong and mind your mama and papa. Go to school and learn and never forget about your sister." I lost it..
I will never let him forget her I will remind him of her love and devotion to him.
She gave him life two times. She gave him up so that he would live and I know this.
She gave him up so that his heart could be fixed while hers would be forever broken.
