Mom's Handwritten Tattoo to Honor Late Daughter

The Story Behind This Mom's Tattoo For Her Late Daughter Will Bring You to Tears

Today is my daughter, Isabells birthday. She would have been 16. She wrote this for me along with a poem when she was 10. Happy Birthday Isabell.

It's a simple, handwritten tattoo that reads, "I love you, Mom!" but the story behind it will bring you to tears. Imgur user 1919roland, mother to Isabell, shared the photo of her new tattoo to the image-sharing platform to honor her late daughter on what would have been her 16th birthday.

"Today is my daughter, Isabell's birthday," the mom captioned the photo. "She would have been 16. She wrote this for me along with a poem when she was 10. Happy Birthday, Isabell."

The heartbroken mother shared in the comments that Isabell suffered from depression and anxiety her entire life and unfortunately took her own life on Nov. 12, 2016. "She wasn't ashamed of who she was and neither am I," Isabell's mom wrote in a comment. "She took her life after years of struggling and is now free of all of it. She was the most loving and caring person I have ever had the honor of knowing. She will be missed by many."
