Remain Unbroken My Child

My Dearest Child, 

I knew that I could never be the perfect parent, but I didn't want to be a broken mother raising broken children either. I didn't want to repeat the mistakes of my own life. I wanted to correct them, and I have.

In you, and through you, all of my dreams have come true. 

I wanted to raise children in a pain free world, but that world doesn't exist. What I could give you were the tools to face that world and to not be broken by it. So many others have been, but not you.
I wanted to raise children who could bend and not break, and despite all that you have been through and experienced you remain unbroken. 

Never let anybody take away your light.
