This I share with you from my very heart.
I am a 55-year-old mom who was blessed to have received a 13-year-old daughter, through foster care, five years ago. Santina came to us as a very sad young girl. Life had not been kind to her. She had parents that were addicts and had been in the system for a few years. The foster home she came from had promised to adopt her, but let her down after having been there over two years. You can imagine how disillusioned and bitter she had become. But I believed in her, her strength, her spirit, her very being. I did not “know” her any more than I “know you.” That doesn’t matter. I knew her with my soul, as I know you with my soul.
Santina little by little, with lots of love, time, and support became able to accept me and my unconditional love. And within the safety of this love she was able to share with me that she was unsure about her sexual identity, unsure about her sexual orientation. She felt a powerful attraction and connection to girls and was worried that this meant she was different and that scared her.
This is where you come in my dear one! I will tell you, with the same heartfelt love I have for her; yes, you are different. You are allowed to be different from everyone else, we all are! You have a journey that is uniquely your own. You are a divine soul and you are free to love whoever you are lucky enough, or blessed to love. And my wish to you is just that you are loved back. I told her, and I tell you, you have been hurt, and there will always be others that choose not to understand or accept you, but you are worthy! Worthy of love, respect, and hope for a beautiful future.
During these holidays, I want you to know that you are the “gift.” You are the star on the tree, the glow of the candles, the light of the universe. Please stay true to who you are, do not change to fit in, be liked, to be accepted. You are perfect in the very person, the very being that you are! No, I do not “know” you, but I didn’t “know” my Santina either. But I knew she was worth loving, and I know, without a doubt, you are, too.
So I send you this love, this acceptance to say this: No matter where you are right now in your life, no matter what you may be going through, there is a mom in Connecticut who will love you and send blessings to you today, and from this day forward. I will send a powerful healing energy to you and will keep you in my heart for the rest of my days.
Love and blessings, forever, your mom in Connecticut,
