Thank you Mellat, I love you


I know only her first name, Mellat.  She is the birthmother of my daughter, Donna.  Four years ago she gave birth to a beautiful young baby.  She herself was only a child, fifteen years of age...  There are no words sufficient to express the gratitude I have for the sacrifices she made for Dede.  Often, I stare into Dede's eyes and wonder about Mellat, and if she is ok.  As Dede grows older I struggle with what to say to her about her birthmother, what is too much?  What is too little?  I stare at the screen here trying to think of what I can write to express my feelings, I cannot.  Thank you Mellat, I love you.
