RIP Tayebeh

The first person who responded to my article in the newspaper was Tayebeh.
A mother of 11 children.
She was married 3 times.
I met her 5 times in Iran.
She was convinced I was her daughter.
She held my hand at the DNA agency.
Tayebeh passed away in April 2017.

Dear Tayebeh-joon, grateful to have met you and spend time with you in Iran.
You are a strong, fierce, loving soul and you had to deal with losing your child without your permission. You suffered a great deal because of this and the pain never left you.
May your soul rest in peace now. I wish I could have showed you Finding Farideh but God decided otherwise. Jat khali.
With all my love,
Farideh

PS. The mother is everything – she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery and our strenght in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy and forgiveness. He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly.
-Kahlil Gibran-
