Mati is my miracle.
Today is her birthday.
This is my story (and I’m sticking to it): After my birth-mother lost her life to postpartum depression when I was 6, she went up to heaven and searched for the best step-mother ever. Mina found Mati. She sent Mati to us, and we all fell in love with her. I asked Mati to marry my dad before he did. They married shortly after I turned 7. I call her mom ever since.
Considering the situation, Mati is the best thing that could have happen to my family, and I am grateful beyond words for her in my life. I’m the luckiest girl because of her. I don’t even want to imagine what my life would look like without her. Let’s just say that I doubt that I would have grown to become someone who is able to help others if she hadn’t been my mother. She showed me trust, she showed me functional love.
