PAMELLA - posted on 10/05/2010 ( no moms have responded yet )
My name is Pamella R and I am glad to be a mom in recovery. To all of you mothers who have your children in your home in your arms close by period. Im telling you you dont miss them until they are gone. I have 6 children 4 in foster care due to my alcoholism and drug addiction. But to God be the glory for restoration and healing in me and my childrens lives. But there is a day when they will return home and I have to do all the things necessary to be ready and prepared for their return. They are coming home. Amen. But I miss and love my babies so and cant wait to see them each visit that we have. I just want to encouraged all of my single moms and even married mothers who feel like you are doing it alone. Know that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that you could ever ask or think. Kiss and love on your babies and tell them that you love them. Take them to school, do homework, read stories tuck them in. They are only young for a short time. Pay attention to what they say, ask them how do they feel. Encourage them and never ignore them.
Mother in Recover.
