    Thanks so much for your kind words Kriti. I miss her a lot.

    A really touching piece Tameka! I would say you are every bit that achiever that you say you are. You did as much as you could and I am sure so did Francine. Like you said the rest will happen when you meet again and you surely will. There is no doubt about it! Love and hugs for you dear one! You are a courageous one!

    Debra, thanks so much for your kind words. At times I wondered if searching was the right thing as we both hurt from it at times, but I am very glad that I got to meet my mom and hug her and talk to her for as long as I did. I just pray she knew how much I loved her.

    Oh honey, how grateful you must be that God gave you the desire of your heart at last, to meet your mom. What a precious memorial to Francine. Bless you. Love and healing prayers. ♥ ♥ ♥

    NC, Each day my heart breaks and heals in succession just as yours did while reading this. I so wish I had more time, more experiences and that is where my pain lies. But, I know I need to someday let those feelings go. I am working on it. Thanks for your hugs and kind words.

    This is a courageous piece of writing. It broke my heart then just as it started putting it back together, broke it all over again. Sending you lots of hugs and I am so glad that you are writing about this and getting it all down.

    I'm glad that you were able to reconnect with her and have memories to hold onto always.


    I'm wrapping my arms around you from across the miles Jess as I know you miss your mom also. Our situations of loss are very different, but the pain is mutual and shared. Thanks so much for your friendship and kindness. I do believe we both will see our moms again. Bless you, my friend.

    I'm crying while reading this. Partly, my own reasons and because I wish I had your strength, faith, and honesty. Not all stories have happy endings and that sucks. But I love that you are finding something in the memories that you do have. No matter the relationship it never gets easy. Grief is different for everyone but the common factor is the pain. I pray for you. <3

    Writer's Wishlist:

    • iPhone 4S
      I currently have an HTC Evo 4G which I'm loving right now, but I look forward to getting the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5. I would like to know what all the hype is about!
    • The iPad
      What writer wouldn't want one of these: ipad I could blog, surf the web and more on the go... Oh well, I'll just be happy with my trusty laptop for now.
