Thank you everyone for your warm reactions to my Return to Russia story on Facebook and Instagram, May 1st to May 8th.
This photo may seem strange for Mothers Day, but it expresses many things for me. It’s a statue at the Baby House near St Petersburg, Russia where I found my son on Nov 12th, 2007 and finally picked him up on May 8th, 2008 after three years of obstacles. The statue needs repairs, like the Baby House, closed down ten years ago.
I send love to all our mothers, all of us blessed to raise our own children and those of us who raise children whose mothers couldn’t. We stand on a fragile pedestal of joys snd challenges.
And love to my beloved daughter, who first made my wish to become a mother come true…
Happy Mother’s Day
