As I continue on this important project I would like to explain how I got this name “Never Give Up Mom.” I have not seen my son for well over a year on this stretch of time, nor have I had access to him via, phone or any other form of communication for about 4 years now.
As my son’s mother, I remember his voice, and have heard it often in my memory. I pray constantly for God to let him know that I am thinking of him, praying for his safety, wellness and happiness.
Maybe as I have prayed for all the good things for him, he was for me. I know my son’s heart as I raised him until his 11th year, so I know that boy. One day I heard in my soul, Never Give Up Mom!
I felt that it did indeed come from him. I know how he was always in support of me and how he conveyed his support to me. Darian you wrote so many loving, supportive messages and letters to me in your elementary years, some I have framed and are hanging in this living room now.
Because of this parental alienation that your father continues to foster, I have started this blog to write to you and tell you the things I do not have a chance to say to you in person.
I believe we all have had “those” moments when we are thinking of others and they were doing the same with us. My relationship with my son was incredibly close and indelible. I am hoping through this form of communication, this will be the building of that bridge that will allow him to know, beyond any shadow of doubt that I love him, pray for him every day, have never forgotten him, and most importantly:
I WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO LET HIM KNOW THESE FUNDAMENTAL THINGS THAT HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO KNOW!
With Love to Every Child, YOUNG AND OLD, that doesn’t know they ARE LOVED.
