    Excerpt

    Mikala raised her gaze to the heavens and raged. “Why? Why? Why?” With every word, she slammed her palms into the frozen earth. “Why did you have to steal my child? Why didn’t you just take me? Why did you give her to me only to reclaim her a few short years later? She was only a baby. She hadn’t lived a full life yet.” Sobbing, Mikala doubled over, her body wracked with pain. “Please, just take me to be with her. I can’t do this anymore on my own. I don’t want to. Please have mercy.”

    She could beg all she wanted, but no one listened. Six months ago, her little butterfly flew to heaven. Never again would Mikala wake up to the melody of her sweet giggles or revel in the warmth of her tiny body as it settled against her own. Mikala couldn’t caress Molly’s pudgy cheeks, tickle behind her ears, or inhale her fresh little-girl scent after a bath. She couldn’t tangle her fingers through her wild mane of curls or get lost in those bottomless blue eyes that stopped most people in their tracks with their unusual color and their ability to see right through them.

    Worst of all, Mikala didn’t know who she was. No longer was she a mother. She would never hear the word Mama coming from her daughter’s bow-shaped lips, giving meaning and worth to her life. Without her child, and without that title, Mikala was no one––no one special.

    Mikala had lied to Molly. She didn’t catch her, hold her, or protect her like she’d promised on the day she was born. She could have and should have. But Mikala hadn’t listened to her internal alarm bell—the one that came as an added bonus the day she learned she was pregnant with Molly, and the one that warned when her precious girl was in trouble. Instead, she’d listened to all the people around her who loved her and Molly, but they had no clue what being a mother was.

    “Wake up, wake up, wake up,” Molly had chanted as she bounced up and down on Mikala’s bed early one Saturday morning in mid-August. “It’s here. It’s today. Daddy says to get you up and get me dressed.” She dropped to her knees and crawled over Mikala, positioning her small body on top of her mother. Molly placed her head on Mikala’s breast as her itsy-bitsy fingers tiptoed their way to Mikala’s armpits and dug in.

    Mikala smiled and grabbed Molly’s hands in one of hers as her other arm banded around the giggling girl and pulled her even closer. She breathed in Molly.
