When a mother is reunited with her son after weeks, months or years of no contact … well, that mother will obviously have a million reasons to smile! She will probably cry tears of joy and find it hard to believe her eyes.
It never matters what caused the separation. It never matters how old the child is. All that matters is that your child, your son, is gone. And, as a mother, you feel like you have lost everything.
And then, after the days turned into years, your son is back … and you feel like you have a reason to live again. All the sleepless nights, all the grief and sadness … are instantly forgotten and forgiven, and you experience an incredible feeling of joy and elation. You want to touch him, hug him, and hold him close – and you never want to let him go again.
Today, this is how Mrs. Suiter feels … because today she found her son Tommy again.
