Fantine et Cosette, dans la série animée Shôjo Cosette.
Right before chance, and the Thénardiers, separate them for evermore.
Anne (the daughter) and Clara (the mother) Magnolia, from Episode 10 (Loved Ones will Always be Watching You) of Violet Evergarden. They live in Clara's old country estate with the sole company of a single maidservant, Eris, who tended to the terminally ill (consumptive) Clara, the husband/father of the household having been killed in action during the last war.
Anne's mother has hired Violet for seven days to write letters, but Anne is not told what the letters are about or who they are for. In addition, Anne is both mistrustful and fascinated by Violet, as she mistakenly believes her to be an actual living doll due to her prosthetic arms. Over the next week, Anne comes to accept Violet but cannot accept being separated from her mother while the letters are written. After an angry outburst by Anne, Violet manages to calm Anne down and convince her not to blame herself for her mother's illness.The letters written, Violet leaves and eventually, the mother dies. Afterward, Anne begins receiving the letters from her mother written by Violet and grows up to start a family of her own. Back at the post office, Violet reveals to her co-workers that the letters would be delivered to Anne on her birthdays for the next fifty years and is overcome with emotion at the thought of Anne having to live alone after her mother's death. Decades later, Anne is a promising postal advisor, happily married and with an infant daughter of her own.
Clara comes from a wealthy household, she was raised as an elite woman and was a qualified university bachelor with a high education level. At some point in her life, she married out of love and had one daughter, Anne. Clara's husband never stayed home, and nothing was heard of him until he was killed in battle. Even though he never was at home and wasn't there for her when she fell ill, Clara did not hold any ill feelings towards him. She didn't want Anne to think severely of him since she claimed that the way he lived his life is just what he wished to do at the moment. She was confident that if they would wait, even though their paths differed, he would return to them someday. It seemed he had been a family heir with a promising future in the past. But a few years after getting married, his side of the family had faced minor commercial issues and crumbled, and the finances had become dependent on the Magnolias.

281. To Charlotte Pulteney
|Ambrose Philips (1675(?)–1749)|
|TIMELY blossom, Infant fair,|
|Fondling of a happy pair,|
|Every morn and every night|
|Their solicitous delight,|
|Sleeping, waking, still at ease,||5|
|Pleasing, without skill to please;|
|Little gossip, blithe and hale,|
|Tattling many a broken tale,|
|Singing many a tuneless song,|
|Lavish of a heedless tongue;||10|
|Simple maiden, void of art,|
|Babbling out the very heart,|
|Yet abandon’d to thy will,|
|Yet imagining no ill,|
|Yet too innocent to blush;||15|
|Like the linnet in the bush|
|To the mother-linnet’s note|
|Moduling her slender throat;|
|Chirping forth thy pretty joys,|
|Wanton in the change of toys,||20|
|Like the linnet green, in May|
|Flitting to each bloomy spray;|
|Wearied then and glad of rest,|
|Like the linnet in the nest:—|
|This thy present happy lot||25|
|This, in time will be forgot:|
|Other pleasures, other cares,|
|Ever-busy Time prepares;|
|And thou shalt in thy daughter see,|
|This picture, once, resembled thee.||30|
