Maya Angelou has certainly had her share of hardships; even one that included the kidnapping of a grandson by the biological mother that lasted for four years. In Letters to My Daughter, Angelou expresses what I think children know instinctively and what courts seem impervious to: "I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."
