My guardian angel always

By Fran

I had the conversation with my parent.

My mother, I am convinced, had something to do with that. She is my guardian angel always.
My mother was dying from breast cancer and we really didn’t talk of it too much, but when we did it was quite special. Something I remember as if it were yesterday. My mother died at 64 in 1994. I still cry for her.

One of our conversations was about my having another child. She wanted me to keep my adopted daughter from being an only child. I had been undergoing fertility treatment for 9 years before adopting a baby one and a half years before. I said to my mother, “Ma, I’ve been trying. Why don’t you send me a sign from heaven.” She died shortly thereafter.

With her life insurance, I went for invetro fertilization. From 14 fertilized eggs, only 1 survived the dish and was implanted, though, I was discouraged and almost gave up at the most painful part of the procedure. My son is now 17 years old and looks just like my brother. My mother, I am convinced, had something to do with that. She is my guardian angel always.
