Maraming beses ko pinag isipan kung dapat pa ba akong mag salita tungkol sa mga personal na nangyayare sa amin ng mommy ko. Naisip ko na cguro dapat hindi na dahil may masabi man ako na maganda ay hahanapan pa din ako ng pagkakamali pero naisip ko na hindi ko naman ito ginagawa para sa iba kundi para sa akin at sa aking ina. Maaga ko nalaman na ampon ako, "ampon ni nora" yan ang madalas ko naririnig nuon. Utang na loob ko ang buong buhay ko sa kanila ni lola. Sa mga hindi nakakaalam ang tumanggap sa akin ay ang lola ko..sya ang dahilan kung bakit napunta ako sa kanila. Tinanggap nila ako ng buong puso. Nang magkakilala si mommy at daddy inako ako ng daddy ko at ginawang De Leon. Ang mommy ko ang bread winner sa pamilya nag sumikap na iahon lahat ng mahal nya sa buhay. Nakasanayan naming magkakapatid na lage syang nag tratrabaho. My mom has been through a lot in her life. Nakita ko at witness ako sa lahat ng pinagdaanan nya. Matibay sya. Kahit kailan hindi nya ipinakita sa aming magkakapatid na nawalan sya ng pag asa sa buhay kahit alam namin na nasasaktan sya. She is the most generous person I know. Pagdating sa relasyon namin sa kanya. Mommy sya. She tried her best to do her duties as a present mom. Nung nag ka pamilya ako tsaka ko lang naintindihan ang mga payo at sakripsyo na ginawa din nya. Kaya lahat din ng kaya ko, binigay ko. Lage nyang bilin mag mahalan kame magkakapatid at yun ay ginawa ko sa abot ng aking makakaya. Hindi ko na ididitelaye ang mga kaganapan sa buhay namin. Pero kung may tao mang importante na gusto ko din maging bahagi sa mahahalang okasyon sa buhay ko at buhay ng mga anak ko ay sya. May mga bagay na mahirap ipaliwanag pero sa isang parte lang ako sigurado. Mahal ko sya at alam ko mahal nya din ako kame ng mga kapatid ko. At kahit ano pa sabihin ng kung sino kame ang mag ka pamilya, kame ng mga kapatid ko at sya, at walang sino man ang makapagbabago duon. ❤

She said it had been on her mind to make a statement about Aunor and felt that even if she said good things about her mom, people would find fault with her. However, she decided to go through with it because the message was meant for no one but her mother.

De Leon said she knew early on that she was “ampon ni Nora” or Nora’s adopted daughter, as she was constantly told.

She recalled Aunor’s hard work to provide for them: “Ang mommy ko ang bread winner sa pamilya nag sumikap na iahon lahat ng mahal nya sa buhay.”

(My mommy was the breadwinner of the family who worked hard to nurture her loved ones in life.)

“My mom has been through a lot in her life. Nakita ko at witness ako sa lahat ng pinagdaanan nya,” she said. (I saw and witnessed all that she went through.)

“Matibay sya. Kahit kailan hindi nya ipinakita sa aming magkakapatid na nawalan sya ng pag asa sa buhay kahit alam namin na nasasaktan sya.” (She’s resilient. She never showed my siblings and me that she had lost hope in life even if we knew she was hurting.)

“She tried her best to do her duties as a present mom. Nung nag ka pamilya ako tsaka ko lang naintindihan ang mga payo at sakripsyo na ginawa din nya,” she said.

(Only when I had a family did I understand her advice and the sacrifices she made for us.)

“Lage nyang bilin magmahalan kame magkakapatid at yun ay ginawa ko sa abot ng aking makakaya,” she shared. (She always told us siblings to love one another and I did that the best I could.)

“Hindi ko na ididitelaye ang mga kaganapan sa buhay namin. Pero kung may tao mang importante na gusto ko din maging bahagi sa mahahalagang okasyon sa buhay ko at buhay ng mga anak ko ay sya,” de Leon said.

(I won’t go into detail about the happenings in our lives. But if there’s an important person whom I would want to be a part of important occasions in my life and in that of my children, it would be her.)

“May mga bagay na mahirap ipaliwanag pero sa isang parte lang ako sigurado. Mahal ko sya at alam ko mahal nya din ako kame ng mga kapatid ko,” she said.

(There are things that are hard to explain but I’m sure of one thing only. I love her and she loves me and my siblings.)

Nora Aunor and Christopher de Leon married in 1975 and had their marriage annulled in 1996. They have one biological child, Ian, and four adopted children: Lotlot, Matet, Kiko and Kenneth. JB
