Half Orphans

It sucks to be a half orphan. It hurts me to think that my mom won’t be at my graduation, at my wedding, or at the hospital when my children are born. It’s weird to think about my dad dating someone else too. 

The silver lining though is that now I have this strange bond with other half orphans. Elias, Meg, Courtney, they all have a special place in my heart. We understand each other, and to be honest, only their words of encouragement and hope mean anything to me. Thanks to everyone for trying to be there, but it’s hard to accept sympathy and empathy if I know you don’t know how it feels.
