It is tough to hold back, and even tougher to speak up; Hope you enjoy my book, Where is My Angel? the opening statement!
“The journey started with agony, screams and pain; that is all I
heard and felt.
Hey, is someone there? I asked. Where is everybody? Where
did you all go?
Is that how we receive a newborn? I was told I will be cherished!
I was told I will find a group of people around me, ready
for me, expecting me! I was told I will be someone’s daughter,
brother, sister, cousin! This means lots of people out there! I was
told I will be treated like an angel! But instead, this weird reception!
Why is everyone looking at me this way? Why are some
of you ignoring me and avoiding eye contact? Where is the lady
that was supposed to hug me when she first sees me? I was told
she will be my mommy, and kids have only one mommy! Hey,
Mommy, are you there?
… that was the answer! Silence was the answer!
Can someone tell me what is happening? Well, it’s after a long
while that a white coat with glasses came to me. Oh I know, this
is the angel that promised me all the beautiful things. The white
coat said, Dear Child, I’m sorry to tell you, what a beginning!
Fate knocked at the door of your mommy, and she traded places
with you. You are now on your own. Stay strong!
But wait, you are not the angel that promised me a beautiful
life, where are you, my angel?
My angel was just there, in the corner, looking at me with
silence and never left!
That is how my journey started, with agony, screams and pain …
It was day one that I learned that pain is relative to the mind, and
if we are not strong enough to stand alone, pain will overpower
us! But remember I was only a child back then …
I dedicate this book to inner-strength, to women in general and
remember that beauty is inside you; to my mother on the death
bed and your thoughts at that moment; to my daughters: because
of you I am who I am today; to me and here is what I have
learned so far …
I am not looking for empathy, I am not looking for tears, I
am not asking you to learn from my mistakes although not all are
mistakes, I just wish you get to learn with time about the package
that made me the person I am today.”
