I wrote a post a while back entitled The loss of parental love can be felt for years.
My own (biological) mother doesn’t know about this blog (and never will), but my stepmother does.
Take a moment to read it and read the comment from Gail. That’s my wonderful step-mother. She’s meant the world to me (along with my dad) ever since we’d been reunited after 19 years apart.
I love them for restoring in me faith that I am loved unconditionally by a parent.
