Mariska had passed away on July 20th, 2006. This is how this sweet angel had come to be a part of my life. I was a member of Angel's Christian prayer group and he had posted about how he had helped a few street kids that night and I had thought wow, God sure does know how to work through this amazing young man. Mariska used to live in Ottawa, Ontario and she had lived on the streets for a long time, the reason that she had lived on the streets was that her parents would sexually and physically abuse her, so he thought the streets would be kinder to her which they were not. Well Mariska had called a man named 'Angel', that is his nickname and he told her about Jesus after he heard her story. She had agreed that he could help her, so he came to where she was and saved her. She had lived with a family in the area and was given my name Mariska for you see Mariska isn't her real name, it is just a nickname and no I will not tell you what my real name is ( I don't know it, due to the confidentially part, same with a picture). She was one of those kids that Angel had helped that night. I had said a prayer for those kids that night, but little did I know but that would be the day that would change my heart forever and always. Angel had gotten Mariska justice for what her parents, along with all abusers had done, they were each sentenced with harsh jail times. Any way, it was a few weeks later, that Angel had posted a prayer request that tour at my heart strings it had said that a young girl named Mariska was diagnosed with hep c and was in the hospital. He had asked if you could to please send out a special message of encouragement to her and I did. I had sent her one each day that I had logged on, but inside of my heart I had felt that she needed more then that, so I had adopted her as my online daughter, I knew that it was going to hurt the day that she passed away, but I knew that she had needed it. I had done it for a long time and one day I was going to log onto send her another letter, when I got a call from Rebecca, Angel's wife that Mariska had passed away in the night and Angel was there with her, along with his legal adopted daughter, Selena who is with her in heaven as well. She had passed away from liver failure which is from the hep c, she was in pain for a long time and she had passed away peacefully plus loved. I had cried for hours and still do when I think of this precious angel. She truly was an angel sent to me from God and I will always love her. Even though she wasn't legally my child, deep down inside of my heart, she felt like she was my child.
Well this is the story of how Mariska had become a part of my life and my heart. I may not know much about her, like what she looked like, her birthday or her age, but deep down inside of my heart she was my adopted daughter and I miss her everyday so much. I will never forget Mariska and she will always be with me as I continue my journey here on earth. She was an angel in my life and I will always love her till the day that I get to join her in heaven. Thank you for taking the time to read this over.

✰ Dear Mariska,

I was listening to the song that I dedicated to you today and I tried to sing it but I couldn't, it just made me miss you so much. I started thinking back to you and the memories I have of you. I started bawling when I started typing this and still am a bit. I miss you. I REALLY miss you. I've had some people tell me that this s**t gets easier as time goes on but, frankly, I call bullshit on that one. No matter how long you've been gone, it still hurts. I'm doing what I can but, sometimes, it's not enough. I hope that you found peace and we will see each other one day. I love you and miss you so much. cry
Love you always,
Aliyah ✰
