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.
She is still my best friend and biggest supporter.
Now that we live on different continents, I miss her like crazy. I’m going to see her next week. Wheeee!
Mom, I Love you.
I’m so glad you were born.
I’m so glad you found me.
Happy birthday to you.
