To My (Un-Official) Adoptive Parents, Here's something I want to say. I could never get the courage to speak the words to your face no matter how many times I rehearsed the lines in my head. As I lie in bed trying to get to sleep as the world around me feels bleak, tears well… Continue reading To My (Un-Official) Adoptive Parents
Dear Mum, This week, on Thursday, it marks eight years since you departed the earthly world to join Jesus in Heaven. Eight years is a long time for a twenty-two year old, yet by the time I am eighty - it will be nothing. Maybe it won't hurt as much then as it does now.… Continue reading Dear Mum | 8 Years

Every day I miss her. Every day there is something I wish I could tell her. That I could just pick up the phone, give her a text or a quick phone call.
