When I got back I had decided that I wanted to talk to mom. I got home and she was in the same spot she was earlier .
Nora! she cried.
I'm fine mom, just.... I need answers.
Is Eleanor here?
No she's left honey, with a boy named Alex.
Oh ok, I said while sitting down.
Why, didn't.... (sighs) why didn't she want me?
Nora honey don-
Just answer the question mom.
Nora, you're a survivor of a failed abortion.
right away my eyes were full of tears.I took several deep breaths.
I? she? I wasn't suppose to live? I cried
Why? Why didn't you guys tell me this sooner? You and dad had 16 years. 16 years to tell me this and you guys never did.
Nora, we were planning to tell you the day you're dad died. I had told you're father to take you to the park and I was going to meet you there. But you're dad didn't make it. I've tried to you. but I just couldn't Nora. Its not that I didn't want to. I just couldn't. she cried. When you're dad died I just couldn't do it on my own.
My fingers run through my hair as I gazed somewhere else other than my mothers eyes. I walked towards her and sat down next to her. And she cried in my arms.
It's okay mom, its fine. I whispered while combing her hair back and out of her face with my hands.
She looked at me and stared at me.
But that's not all. She said in a low voice.
You're birth mom was carrying twins. And when she found out she had twins, that's when she decided to do the abortion. But it was failed and she was aware of that. So when she was in labor you're sister came out first. She was so tiny and she was less then a pound. She came out with one leg completely gone. Ripped completely of, do because of the fail attempted. The you came out.
Me and you're dad adopted you two as soon as we could. We brought you home when you were 1 month old, but you're sister had to stay in the hospital. She fought hard for her life. But she died when she was just 4 month old. She said while looking down.
I took another deep breath. Wha- Uh- What was her name?
Aria, Aria was her name.
That's a nice name. i said softly. Last question mom. Why did you adopted me?
She took a deep breath. A year before all of this happened, me and you're father were pregnant with twins. But we lost them.Back then I use to work as a nurse, so when I went to work for the first time after my lost a woman was in labor.
Was that my mom?
That was her.
I'm sorry for over reacting mom.
Nora you had every right to act the way you did.
Thank you mom.
For wanting me.
