It is unfortunate that anyone has to lose their children...missing out on school plays and graduations, loose teeth and birthdays, early crushes or the daily routine of growing up in the middle of good times and bad...but to never have known them is a greater tragedy or to never be reunited would be a war never won. This is excellent writing and expression and I thank you for sharing this treasure.

A poem from the heart of your conviction. I'm so glad that your sons found you and you were able to get them back.
I cannot fathom parents who steal their children over selfish desire or hatred. The damage done to the children in this process is immense.

I have three children, by different mothers, who, after many, many years, found me and we are in steady contact today. So, I relate. Big time.

A deep heartfelt plea and offering. I lost one infant when I was 19 to horific occurances and then two sons later when their mother and I divorced. We didn't find each other until decades later. Thank you for the vision.

what a beautiful poignant call and message...'i am a warrior with no time to weep'...says it all about mothers around the world protecting their young...human,mammal,reptile....what an incredible piece.

What sets this apart, is the descriptive unfolding of the story.
