I have a special friend who is more like a son to me. He’s got a heart filled with nothing but love for everyone. This young man was born into a family who just doesn’t extend him the love he deserves. When he was born, his mom didn’t want him. He was adopted to an outside family. His biological family is many in numbers, yet no one wanted him at birth. I don’t understand how this family could let someone as nice as him be placed elsewhere. Sometimes I see sadness within his face. He longs to be loved and treated with the respect which he deserves. He told me how evil and hateful his biological mom was, and even his dad never wanted him in his life. He has aunts and uncles who’re all the same and just cast this young man aside as though he never existed. I’ve tried to help him in many ways, to overcome all the hurt and pain. At last this pain has built up so much over the years that this young man wants closure in his life.
My friend told me when he was 13 years-old, he went to seek his biological mother just to ask, why did she give him up for adoption? He knocked on her door, she answered and he asked her why? She cursed my friend and told him to never come near her again. She also told her innocent, 13 year-old son that she hated him. To this day, he never asked her why the anger or even why the hatred? I was in shock when he told me his story. My heart began to hurt and I felt his pain as he remembered his mother telling him to stay away from her. He just wanted some answers for closure in his life. She didn’t have to decency to tell him the truth.
