这是一位韩国女孩在她12岁的时候写给从未谋面的生身母亲的一封信,
一封我所能想象的最美最感人的来自女儿的信。

当她将这封手抄信放到我的手中,我的眼泪就没有停过。她的美国养
母从我见到她的开始,让人感觉很平淡,没有一些动听的话语。当她
和她的韩国女儿,从心里流露出来的对生命无尽的爱和感恩,使我深
深地被震撼了。

特将这封英文信简单地翻译,希望朋友们从中感受这份美好。

写在二零零一年五月二十八日

亲爱的母亲:
Dear Mother:

尽管我不认识你,我爱你并原谅你。我很高兴你将我送去领养,因我现在有两位爱我照顾我的基督徒父母亲。我知道如果你能留我在你身边,你一定如他们一样地爱我。也许在世上的时候,我见不到你,我希望并祈祷我 在天堂与你相见。我很高兴你没有将我从你的腹中就弃掉我,使我有这个生的机会。
Even thou I don’t know you, I love and forgive you. I am so
glad you put me up for adoption because now I have wonderful
Christian parents who love and take care of me. I know that
if you were able to keep me you could have loved me just the
same. Maybe if I don't see you on the earth I hope and pray
that I will see you in Heaven. I am glad that you did not
abort me and that you gave me a chance to live.

一月份我就13岁了。我有个妹妹黛丽,在20个月的时候从巴西被领养。十二月就8岁了。黛丽是个有特殊需要的女孩,她的右臂只长到胳膊肘,上面只长出1个半的手指,她的左臂没有长出肩膀,上面只有一个手指。如果你见到她,或许会以为她有手臂。她可以喂自己吃饭、绘画、多数衣服自己穿。她会骑自行车、溜冰、滑旱冰。黛丽和我都是上家庭学校,我们去的教堂里一位女士教导我们俩钢琴课。黛丽爱骑马,因她是残疾儿童,她为了乐趣上骑马课。黛丽还上免费的游泳课,游泳池很棒水很暖和。我最喜欢的小动物是猫。我有一只猫叫泰贝,黛丽有一只猫叫花。花是只花猫,泰贝是只虎斑猫。
I will be 13 in January. I have a sister who is also adopted.
Darli was adopted from Brazil at 20 months. She will be 8 in
December. Darli is a special needs child, her right arm goes
down to her elbow and has only 11/2 fingers on it. Her left
arm stops at the shoulder and has only 1 finger on it. If you
saw her you would think she has arms. She feeds herself, draws,
colors, and mostly dresses herself. She can ride her bike, roller
skates and roller blade. Darli and I are both homeschooled and
a lady at the church we visit who is the organist gives Darli
and I piano lessons. Darli loves horses and since she is handi-
capped, she gets horseback riding lesson for fun. Darli also
gets swimming lessons for free and the class allows ribblings
to get lessons too. The pool is great, and very warm. My favorite
animal is a cat. I have a cat named Tabby and Darli has a cat
named Flower. Flower is a calico and Tabby is a tabby cat.

现在和您说我的养父母。他们是很好的人。养父在13频道,WJZTV工作。养母是位全职的家庭主妇。他们对我非常有爱心,他们可以领养更多小孩。
Now about my adoptive parents. They are wonderful people. Dad
works at Channel 13, WJZTV. Mom is a fulltime homemaker, and
teaches Darli and I. They each have love in their hearts for
us and any more children we should adopt.

这里是一首我特别喜欢的小诗。
Here is a poem I like very much.

从前有两位女人
她们互不相识
一位你不记得她
另一位你叫她母亲

两个不同的生命塑造你
使你成为一个完整的人
一个成为你人生旅途的导航星
一个成为你生命中的太阳

第一位给你生命
第二位教会你生活
第一位给你对爱的渴望
第二位在那里给你爱

一位给你出生的国籍
另一位给你一个名字
一位给你聪明的种子
另一位给你帮助

一位给你感情
另一位安抚你的惊慌
一位看到你的第一个微笑
另一位擦干你的眼泪

一位离开了你
这是她所有能做的
另一位祈祷有一个孩子
上帝将她直接领到你的面前

现在你含着眼泪问我
许多年来的老问题
你是遗传还是环境的产物
都不是,亲爱的,不是
那是两种不同的爱
---无名氏

Once there were two women
Who never knew each other
One you do not remember
The other you call Mother

Two different lives shaped
To make yours one
One became your guiding star
The other became your sun

The first gave you life and
The second taught you to live in it
The first gave you a need for love
And the second was there to give it

One gave you a nationality
The other gave you a name
One gave you the seed of talent
The other gave you an aim

One gave you emotions
The other calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile
The other dried your tears

One gave you up
It was all that she could do
The other prayed for a child
And God lead her straight to you

And now you ask me through your tears
The age old questions through the years
Heredity or environment---which are you
The product of
Neither, my darling, neither
Just two different kinds of love
---Annoymous

有时候我会想生下我的你究竟是什么模样。你高吗?我长得象谁?
但是我知道这些问题其实无关紧要,因为无论怎样我都爱你!
Sometimes I just think about you were you who I was born.
Are you tall? Who do I look like? But you know all these
questions really don't matter because I love you no matter
what!

在我停笔以前,我还有一些事想要告诉你、问你。我想回答你在当
初送我给人领养时就有的一个最大的问题。是的,我被一家很好的
人领养了!现在我还有些问题想问你。在我出生后你见过我吗?如
果见过,你给我取了什么名字?
Before I put my pencil down I have some more things to tell
and ask you. I want to answer one of your biggest questions
first you may have had when you put me up for adoption. Yes,
I was placed into a good home!Now here are some more questions
I'd like to ask you. Did you see me after I was born and if
you did what did you name me?

我想告诉你一件事。如果你没有和我的生父结婚,我想让你知道,我
很爱你们!我会永远爱你们!
I want to tell you something. If you were not married to my
birth father when I was born I want to let you know that I
love you both very much! And I always will!

母亲,再次地感谢你生下了我并给我在世上生活的机会!我很爱很爱
你,尽管我有养父母,我的心中永远有足够的空间和爱来全心地爱你
们所有的人!
Mom, thank you again for letting me have a chance to live and
a chance at life! I love you very much and even though I have
adoptive parents there will always be enough room and love in
my heart for all of you!!!!


爱你的,
你永远的女儿
蓓思

Love,
your daughter always
