- Love Adele new song... It's heart warming because this song " Hello" I relate to what my experience of growing up in the Philippines at nine years old of losing my Mama and I have to become mature such a young age. Then my Papa also passed away 10 years later before I got married at 19 yrs old. Married to abusive military American ex husband for 13 years and now divorce for 19 yrs. I feel deep in my heart that I have lost myself since I was nine and that I was robbed of my youth because I have no one to guide me to adulthood. I evolved myself on my own and become who I am because of my courage to live life. If someone ask me or given a wish, I would wish to give my Mama a second life so I had the time to bound with her.
