I can't count the times I have let you down,
I can't count the tears of the fears,
Of knowing I wouldn't always be around.
The addiction I carry I couldn't hide within,
Until the day they took you and my life became a stray.
I want you to know that even though things are crazy now,
Love in my heart to you will exceed from high above.
I know now how I lost you and no longer suffer,
I no longer hide and run away from the tears and fears,
For you I will always hold,
Forever close by because you are my little Andres.
The choices I have made haven't been the best but one thing knowing,
is that you are the love of my life.

Addiction is selfish. To put a child through that abuse. Is very selfish. Motherhood is a choice, no it's not easy.
The best things in life are far from easy. When you choose to be a Mother you made your choice to put the child first.
You should be addicted to their love, caring, raising, well being. Not a drug. Never a selfish choice to be a Mom.
Selfish day there are no time for. Children come first.

The joy of motherhood never stops: long before you have the child to long after the child has grown. Children come first. Motherhood is a choice. Children do not have that choice.

Children come first. A mom's only addiction should be her child, not herself. All moms struggle with being a good mom. They just find a way to do it. They put their children first.
