I picked this cross because it brought back a painful memory of my father who lost his rights when I was two years old. He didn’t even call on my birthday for five years. I love my father and the last thing I ever wanted was for him to leave. The age that I was at, I couldn’t fully understand until now. My father was a drug addict and it wasn’t very easy to understand why he chose that over us as a family. I do forgive my father in many ways and our relationship is better now, but the pain is always there. I still feel it time to time.
