A Mother Understands Another

A mother reclined on a chair comforting her daughter who sat at her feet sobbing uncontrollably, her head buried in her lap.
"Everyone keeps telling me that I was utterly helpless when I had to hand over the custody of my son but I can't help feeling guilty that I let him go," she managed between her sobs.
"Will he know the truth one day Mom?" she asked with hope filled in her eyes.
"Will he know that it wasn't in my hands and that I'm not the cold hearted and despicable mother like his father told him but that I love him - so much," her voice cracked at the last words.
Her mother stayed silent but a tear rolled down her face as she placed a hand on her daughter's forehead and a fresh torrent of cries emerged from her throat.

Very unusual take on the prompt, and extremely well-written!!
There are many such situations when only the person herself/himself knows the truth.
