I was just bathing in memories. Here you can see me as a young mother and my only son, who is now 36 years old (you can see us together in the last picture today). I am very lucky to have such a wonderful son. Our early years weren't always easy. Although I never wanted to separate once I was a mother, my son was only 1 1/2 years old when his parents separated. After a few years there was a second attempt at a relationship, again for four years. Then came the final separation. I would have loved to have spared my son all that - and like many parents I couldn't. That's why my heart sometimes gets a little sad when I look at the toddler pictures.
