This beautiful piece by a devoted PMA International member and Hero Protective Mom, expresses what we all feel in an eloquent manner. It is a re blog and worth repeating .
No parent who loves their child, who wants to be with their child, who isn’t a threat to their child, who never abused their child, nor intentionally harmed them, should have their child ripped from them senselessly, unjustly, and to be then alienated from their child, in some cases, so severely, as though they have died, and to be left with having to beg for any knowledge or glimpse of their child, hoping and waiting on any scraps that *might* be tossed their way.
I am one mother who is exhausted from trying to cope with the knowledge that there are people so evil who carry out such cruel, evil injustice, and from having to implore the takers, the hostage holders, and their cohorts and other connected persons, of my own child, for something, anything, because something, anything, no matter how minuscule, is better than nothing at all. Facing more often than not, the abject rejection, of denial, so often given, with utter silence.

|To my little birds, for whom I will forever ache, missing under my wings since 12/13/2012…
Gone, but always on my mind and in the hole in my heart that can only be filled by you,
A, R, R, Z. You are forever in my prayers and thoughts.
My hope is that you are truly happy, genuinely allowed to enjoy your childhood, and that you do not suffer paralyzing grief because of our separation.
I hold hope in my heart that one day we can sweep up the pieces, laugh and cry about all we have lost/missed, and can never again be forcibly kept apart.
This poem is by Emily Dickinson…and is my dreaded, daily reminder of you, my sweet Angelbabies…love you to the moon and back, more than ice cream, and forever and always…

“The enduring bond shared between a mother and child begins from the moment of her first touch, and lasts a lifetime…”
For Mother’s Day, SK-II skin care products released this beautiful video showing how the power and love communicated by a mother’s touch has nurtured her child throughout her life, “Too often we underestimate the power of touch. A caress across a baby’s little warm feet. A gentle pat of encouragement. These small intimate moments speak volumes and bring us together. The enduring bond shared between a mother and child begins from the moment of her first touch, and lasts a lifetime. This Mother’s Day, celebrate the power of touch with SK-II.”
The video is accompanied by a soothing piano melody and offers emotional depictions of milestones in the child’s life – her first steps, a dance recital, a broken heart as a teenager – at each milestone, the mothers is a source of strength and support for her child.
PMA International offers our love, prayers and support to all Hero, Protective Mothers and their Children.
For those mothers who are separated from their children, and children who are separated from their mothers, though you may not be able to touch each other now, may the memories, and the precious mother-child bond you share, keep you close until you are together again.
Happy Mother’s Day!
“I Love You
You’re the Best
Child’s Letter to Mom includes picture drawn of Mom and Child together,
wearing triangle dresses, and a page filled with hearts.
The child has drawn Mom inside a heart with green grass and a blue sky above,
to show that she keeps happy memories of Mom inside her heart.

” My Daughters-
Can you feel me when I dream of you?
Does your heart feel my heart as it reaches for you,
tugs at you in the night?
Does your soul hear my pain as it howls at the wind?
Missing you, loving you,
Grieving the loss of you in my life,
I am forever changed
You are never forgotten and always loved.”

” It’s not just me missing you. Everyone here on my side of the mirror remembers you face and your infectious smile. The friends you had are still your friends. Family too is always here loving you, still rooting for you, wishing you well and wishing you back into our lives.”
