WHO DO YOU LOOK LIKE, MY SON?

You are here

DEAR SON,
If you are reading this then I get to say hello to you.
How do I say hello 23 years later to a son I never saw, whose face I can't even picture.
I wonder who you look like. Do you have clear blue eyes like I have, or do you have light golden brown eyes like your father.
Perhaps you resemble your grandfather; after all you were born on his birthday. You didn't know that did you? How could you?
You also don't know what time you were born as it wasn't recorded on your birth certificate.
Well I am the only one who knows; it was five minutes to midnight, the bewitching hour, on, of all nights Halloween.
Don't let anyone ever tell you I didn't love you; that just isn't true. I loved you so much it hurt, and I loved you much more than I loved myself; that was why I was prepared to sacrifice my happiness for yours.
I remember very clearly the last week we were together. I went to bed and just felt you kick and move inside me. I wanted to share those last few days with you alone, as I knew that once I gave birth we would be parted, perhaps forever.
Well, my son, if you don't wish to contact me that's alright. I'll still be there with you, for it is my blood that courses through your veins and that can never be erased or denied. Thousands of years of blending created the special composite that you are.
One day you will have a little daughter; somehow I even feel you may have one now. And when that little daughter looks up at you with her clear blue eyes, they will be my blue eyes looking up at you.
When your little daughter, begins to weave her magic spell with her creative hands, she will only be doing what her grandmother and my grandmother did before me, and you will admire her skill and think she is unique.
When you smile down at her with love in your eyes and heart, part of that love will be for me, for heredity is strong and lives on through generation after generation.
All my love forever
From Your Mother xxx

 

I WASN'T GIVEN ANY OTHER OPTION BUT ADOPTION. THIS LETTER WHICH WAS PRINTED IN THE LETTERS SECTION OF A NEWSPAPER, 23 YEARS LATER, CLEARLY SHOWS THE LINGERING EFFECTS OF THE BRAINWASHING THAT TOOK PLACE IN THOSE HOMES. TO BE ABLE TO MAKE A CHOICE, FIRST OF ALL, YOU NEED AT LEAST ONE OTHER OPTION.
