Hi M.

Thank you for stepping up and responding. You hit the nail on the head about respecting the sovereignty of our children no matter what horrors befall them. Yes, it is their own karmic journey, and they have a right to process it and transcend beyond in their own timing. I get this intellectually, but emotionally I want to go into battle to protect them like a mother bear protecting her cubs. I can't think of any greater trauma than a mother being torn asunder from her child. It feels like past traumas run so deep that the pain might melt me away like pure white snow in the hot sun. Then I will trickle away and disappear, once again, while my children reach out their arms and cry out in the dark night.

I long for the higher world "when the mother and child reunion is only a motion away."
