Because of YOU


Because of you, I am a better person.

Because of you, I wake up with a smile on my face.

Because of you, I have learned so much.


Because of you, the empty place in me has been filled.

Because of you, I just bought flights to Italy in October.

Because of you, this is no longer my song.

Again you make me cry!
I'm happy your heart if full and complete. You deserve this joy and completeness. It is so clear to me that this meeting, this mother and son reunion was both your destiny and Federico's. Everything was exactly as it was meant to be.

Sarah Wood:


This is beautiful. I'm crying just thinking about the pain and anguish so many women endure. Wow. Powerful. I'm so happy that Federico is now in your life. We love you guys!


All in Gods perfect timing.....I love hearing your story and I KNOW the journey will continue forever........We are all blessed.
Love & Hugs,
"Aunt YaYa Connie"

Mary Hitt:

Having experienced the pain of miscariages and infertility, and the joy of adopton, this song and your feelings really hit home. Had never herd this song before, and it made me cry. On a happier note, our youngest daughter will be studying for her Master's dgree at Polimoda in Florence this fall. Love your blog!


As I SlowTrav member, I've been following your road to becoming a mom to Federico. I've shed numerous joyful tears on your behalf.

As someone for whom motherhood was elusive too long (unexplained infertility, miscarriages) and now has a joyful "overflow" of triplets who are almost 20, I found myself weeping as I watched the video of
the song that is no longer yours.

Can't wait to hear all about your reunion in October!

Okay-you made me cry! I'm so happy for you Palma!
