My name is Christine Amaryllis. I have one bio child, who turned 21 in June. He lives in New York, well, he is in his last year of college, but he intends to stay there. I am currently living in Texas. I have had a really hard time letting go, my apron strings have taken a real beating. He has been gone for the past three years, since he started school, and I have seen him just occasionally since then. He does keep in touch, he calls and emails me. Still, it is incredibly hard. I was a single mom since his dad and I divorced when he was five. I am in a great relationship, and somehow can't quite let go of being "ma".
I hope that this is not so uncommon., I do have a life, I work, and do my normal things. But there is a big Al shaped hole in my heart.
Anyway, just wanted to say hello, and I am feeling a little mopey about it today.
Looking forward to talking to everyone,
