I had to - and I even had the Mother's Day card, which I brought to the funeral home and put in her casket. She died April 21 and Mother's Day was a few weeks later. I had a terrible relationship with my biological mother. I was taken from the home by the Law and placed in foster care, then adopted. That mother has passed away too. I didn't get along with either mother but the adoptive one didn't do the terrible things the biological one did - the things that made the Law come down in the first place. But the adoptive one didn't feel like "flesh of my flesh" when I was at the funeral. The biological one did no matter what she'd done to me.ergomac wrote:i was just thinking about that as well cmac i hope and pray RDA can get through this it's a tough blow to deal with first loosing his mom and then having to deal with mothers day a few weeks later poor rick i hope and pray the rest of the year is good to him
The adoptive mother gave me a poem the day I was adopted that went:
Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously my own,
never forget for a single minute
you didn't grow under my heart
but in it.
