A Promise…


I will not give up. I will not be fatigued. I will not walk away.  I will work to the best of my ability to recover your life. Only death will make me fail you.  I will be your rock and anchor your life, a springboard into the future. I will not be exhausted. Nor will I get it right. But I will always come back to try again.

I will not try and be your friend, I will be your mother and I will allow you to dislike me for that sometimes. I will not let you walk all over me or get away with anything. I will be tough on you when you need it. And I will hold you afterwards.

I will let them spend their anger on me and do the best that I can to preserve your relationships with your extended family. I cannot promise I will succeed, but I will try my best.  I will be prepared to answer every hard question you have about the decisions I will make for us this year because there is no one else to make them for you. I will do the things that I sometimes doubt that I can do.

I will still be here when you are doing your homework in high school. And when you graduate. And go to college. And get married. I will choose you first. I will tell you that you were wanted. I will fight for you, just like I have for the past 3 years.  I want to be your Mommy and I will work hard to deserve that title from you.  I will fight for you as hard as you have fought for your very survival.  And I will try and be worthy of your indomitable spirit.

You Are My Daughter…

    Thanks Suzie! It has been an unbelievably hard road getting to this spot and there is still so much road to be traveled. I’m kind of looking forward to writing about it all in the future. Really glad you’re enjoying reading the posts :-)
