A Promise

 

"A Promise" tells a story of Fanny, a mother who suffers from schizophrenia with exacerbation during pregnancy. She was then institutionalized. Eventually, her ex-husband was granted the custody of their child, Pearl.

 

It is Pearl's birthday today, and while they all love Fanny always, they are somewhat ambivalent to go see Fanny, who is in her recovery. Love has no shame, even though it takes time to accept. And we know that one day, Pearl will say, "Thank you mommy for all your love." There is always hope!
