Mayra Duron shares her feelings about her own adoption in the spoken poem to her own birth mother. Struggling through confusion, loneliness, wondering and worrying, Mayra expresses her previous anger and her current gratitude toward her birth mother. She shares her life and her love of life.

Mayra knows that her healing is coming from God, and that the sacrifice of her birth mother was a God-like action. Mayra’s words could be the words of many adoptees.  Expressing her feelings, Mayra gives voice to adoptees who feel deeply but don’t know how to share those feelings. This is a beautiful voicing of true, deep feelings.
