My biological mother didn't do much more than drink, so I often became friends with girls so I could spend time with their mothers. Knowing that, I make my best effort to do craft projects with my daughter's friends and be a mother to every child in the community.
Your story is really sad, but I can see the happy parts of it.


I think you have given that mother a very meaningful legacy :-)....I hope you see her again someday, so she will know. It's odd how the sweetest things can come out of chaos and sadness....but, maybe that is what gives the extra meaning and depth to your memories. Well...I hope you see this family again :-).

I also like what Alex wrote above about being open in mothering other children in the neighborhood. From your story alone, it's clear that we never know how much of an impact it might have.
