My only child Emma

Emma was my only child. A gift I always wanted. A daughter to name Emma. I wasn't able to have children so she was adopted in 1990 from Bucharest, Romania. It was love at first site. About 2001, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The meds didn't always help and when she was about 18 she began to self-medicate and eventually started heroin. Not a steady user. Emma would stop for months at a time. Then it just engulfed her. I tried and tried to help but eventually she succumbed to it. I miss her with every part of my existence. I still thank God for giving her to me for 25 years.
