Mother and Child

by | Oct 14, 2010 | 0 comments

It feels horribly wrong to create a child- another human being with someone- and then lose that person.  We created and started a family of our own.  Father, mother, child.  Now it is just mother and child.  And with you died any other children that might have been.  We are incomplete here without you Hae wan- so completely deficient and flawed.
