she feels like a mom

its allie. i wanted to write some about how i see dr. barry as a sorta mom. even tho technically i know she isnt. and she cant be. but i still sorta see her as a mom. because she does motherly things for us. she cares about us. she shows that in so many ways. she listens to us without judging us. she validates us and validates our feelings. she wipes our tears when we cry. she laughs with us. she wants to know about our life, not just the bad parts either. she gets joy from our successes. she cares enough about us that she will pass comments when we dont wear a coat, or when we arent eating properly, or when we had the wrong shoes on she told us when no one else did. i love her for that. i love her for so many things she does for us. i always tell her she can adopt me even tho i do know she cant. when i am very sad and feel so alone i imagine what living with her would be like. it makes me feel better. i know some people probably think i’m nuts. or that dr. barry should not encourage us. but when you see a person every week for four plus years, the attachment grows very strong. for both of you. i guess i just wanted to say how she’s like a mom to me, even tho in reality she isnt my mom.
