Happy Mother’s Day 2013
I was born to Cora Christian in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1977.
Five months later, I was given to a caucasian family. My new mother was Karan Ramsay.
To Cora: I never met you. I was only told my health was difficult as a baby. Because of your love, you and my father(James Abraham Christian Sr – I was the only boy born to them) decided to put me up for adoption. For awhile I didn’t understand but I now know I was meant to go places and experience life differently than you did.
I only talked to you a handful of times since I found a way to be in contact with you in 1998. It was awkward to be called “baby” because I wasn’t one and I was never with you much after I was born. However, I did understand it! And that told me that you truly never stopped thinking of and loving me since I was created! So that gives me a feeling of care and love!!! We never were to meet. You passed on a few years later along with my father. My heart does have that sadness that I never got to meet you. But what I have is the knowledge that you gave me life and I have sisters who I have yet to meet. But our contact on Facebook is good for now.
Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him.
God bless your lovely soul, mommy!!!

To Karen: After I was born, I was a very sick baby. After five months of being passed from one family to another(so ill), I found you. And God began us as mother and son. I recall a happy childhood. I had you, daddy(Roland), Jennifer & Larry. Also, WooWoo(dog), Sweepea(cat), Madaline(cat), Amanda(cat), Peanut(cat), Ivy(cat) & Murphy(cat). I will always cherish this full set of loved ones. You were our backbone and I recall how you were a great mother!!!
It was unfortunate that due to some mental illness and addiction on us kids that we fell apart at times. But we got back together and we stayed strong. However, it was not to remain.
My last e-mail to you was ferocious. I spewed lies and poison that affirmed my pain. I have to live with this sad guilt for the rest of my life. And I need to! Even though we had a rough relationship for years(after my childhood), I needed to learn to let go and not to give in to anger and resentment.
Now you are no longer speaking to me. But to handle this hard fact, I pray time-after-time to stay in hope and to want you to live happily. I have no idea what is going on with you(since 2007).
I still love you. I miss you. For that, I do pray for good health and living for you, Jennifer, Christopher, Larry and our girl, Kristine!
For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, ‘Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is a gift devoted to God,’ he is not to ‘honor his father ‘ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”–which is the first commandment with a promise– “that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
I love you,
James Christian Ramsay
God bless you who read this.
Know that family is healthy if you remain with them!

People often say that mothers are the best teachers in the world. Over the years, I have come to know that it couldn’t be truer. Thanks for being the best mother and teacher in the whole world. Happy Birthday my dearest mommy!
