Wow! What a concept. Just recently I started talking to my mom while incarcerated and it is a new experience – meaning we haven’t really talked my entire life. She has been absent from my life since I was a baby. Well, getting to know her has been interesting, exciting and fun and I’m so happy to be finally filling a void that has been empty for so long in my life.

There is so much healing that needs to take place, but for now I’m just thanking God (and my kids and my brother) for bringing my mother and I back together. On this day, October twenty first, thirty eight years ago, my mother gave birth to me and for that I am forever grateful.

Thanks Mom. I love you,

Your Daughter.
