Faye was adopted by her now parents when she was young. She recalls the experience of being an adoptive child. She says, “Growing up without my biological parents, life seemed so hard that time because at that age I was really longing for parental love. However, I was still so blessed because I was being taken good care of by my foster parents. I must say that even though I felt so incomplete that time, I still felt loved and they treated me as their true daughter.”

The greatest lesson that Faye has learned during her childhood days, according to her, is that people always come and go, therefore, we have to love them in every moment of our lives.

The memory that lives vividly in Faye’s mind and heart is of the last time she saw her mother and touched her face. The event took place 16 years ago before she died.
