The market is as crowded as he had said it would be.  The question remains whether I am going to find what I am looking for.

“I lied about your adoption,” he says.

Now he wants to have this conversation?  When the doctors say he could go anytime.

“You were never abandoned by your parents”, he says, “but your mother had no choice”.

“You knew my mother? And said nothing?”

“In those days a child born from an affair between a married woman and a foreigner would have no future there.”

I stand before her stall and our eyes meet.

  6. I agree with Liz, I'm glad he learned the truth before his adoptive father passed on. I'm also glad a new chapter in his life with his bio mother is about to begin. Great story.

  11. Perfectly constructed, your ending was like the cherry on top of the sundae :) Sadness, of course, but finally finding her birth mom is wonderful.

  12. طريقة تنظيف الخزانات بالكلور
    يوجد طريقتين تستطيع اتباعهم حتى تستطيع تنظيف خزانات المياه من خلال استخدام الكلور

    الطريقة الأولى
    - عليك أولا القيام بارتداء نظارة حتى تستطيع حمايتك اثناء عملية التنظيف
    - ارتداء قفازات ذات نوع مطاطي
    - كل 200 لتر ماء نقوم بوضع 15 مل من الكلور
    - الانتظار لمدة 60 دقيقة
    - نقوم بعد ذلك بفتح كافة الصنابير المتواجدة حتى تستطيع التخلص من المياه من خلال شبكة المياه
    - فى حالة إضافة كمية أكثر مما ذكرناها لا يحدث ضرر لك فقط قد يتواجد رائحة فى المياه لعدة أيام قليلة
    الطريقة الثانية
    - باستخدام المياه يتم رش الخزان
    - المسح جيدا لجميع الجوانب الخاصة بالخزان و الارضية و الاسقف من خلال استخدام قطعة من القماش حتى يتم التخلص من العوالق
    - إخراج المياه من الخزان وكافة الرواسب التى تتواجد به ثم يتم تركه حتى يصبح الخزان جافا
    - اضافة الكلور بكمية معينة ويتم وضعه على السقف و جميع الجوانب
    - يتم تنظيف الخزان من خلال استخدام المياه
    - وفى النهاية نقوم بأخراج المياه من الخزان ثم يتم وضع كمية من المياه جديدة
