THE INVISIBLE STRING
Dr. Ariel Rosita King
“We are connected by an invisible string mommy” you said to me when you saw me shivering with fear, although I tried to hide it, as we waited together for the decision
of protection orders. Yes, Ariana-Leilani, it is true! Even though I do not know where you
are now, we ARE connected by an “invisible string” of love and hope.
You were and remain such an unusual child, with wisdom years beyond your age. I remember the same day, placing your hands to your heart and then putting your hands on my chest saying, “Here mommy, here is a piece of my heart.” Somehow you knew that
we together would need the connection and heart to survive the years of separation and dangers until we are safely together again.
From the very beginning of your life, you are wise and compassionate beyond your years. Always looking to see how you can ease the pain of those around you. Letting them know that the best way through pain is to recognize it, go through it, and come out of the other side with love and laughter.
Ariana-Leilani, you are courageous, compassionate, tenacious and always seeing the best in all people. You have been able to grow up, in spite of being separated from all family, waiting for your time to be reunited, keeping the pain of isolation deep inside, not knowing if or when it will stop.
You love cautiously. Your tender heart that has experienced more loss than most people accumulate in a lifetime. Yet, you forgive easily and smile with ease.
Ariana-Leilani, your name means holy one sent from heaven. Now it is my turn to say to you, “Yes, we are connected by an “invisible string” of generations of family and love; I to your late grandmother (Dr Margo King) and I to you, my daughter.” This “invisible string”, will allow you to be freed. I will find you. I will love you to healing, connect to you with love, laugher, family and support. So, follow the “invisible string” my darling to find the part of your heart you left with me many years ago is safe and ready for you to take it back, to develop and grow in freedom, light and love.
Ariana-Leilani Margarita Alexandra King-Pfeiffer, the “invisible string” that connects us, will lead you to freedom, to finally come home to your family and unstoppable love!
