Usually when I sit down to write you a letter, I have something in particular in mind. Today I do not have anything to share. Honestly, I am writing because you have been on my mind without ceasing for weeks now. My heart aches with love for you that I am unable to share with you in person.
I know the holidays have alot to do with that, because that is when we want to be with our extended family. And obviously we have no interaction with you at all at this point. Needless to say, we miss you. We wish so desperately that we could have a visit with you during that time just so we could let you know how much we love you too. The kind of visit that families have during the holidays. We continue to hope and pray that someday soon that will happen.
We all three laughed out loud as I picked out the bow to include with the outfit because we have never seen you with any kind of fancy hair bow, and your hair is crazy and out of control. I had never seen a white blonde afro until we saw yours. Your hair cracks us up every time we see a picture of it
We have had lots and lots of talk about you around our house the last couple of weeks. It makes me so happy when we say your name and talk about how we hope our future includes knowing you better. BF and I have talked ALOT about that lately. The boys chime in from time to time and will often ask if we have heard anything from your parents. They too still have hope that maybe soon we might get a little more access to you and your family. We keep praying.
My dad also got all of us girls fun hats for Christmas. This picture has the sister who was missing from the first photo in it (far left), but my sister from California wasn't in town yet when we opened the hats so she is missing from this photo. One of these days all 5 of us will be together for a group picture! The baby I am holding is my youngest sister's (the girl sitting next to me) newborn daughter. We are crazy in love with her and all fight to hold her.
So we hope you know how very much we love you and we are looking forward to the day that we can shower you with that love and include you in some of our special family gatherings. You are never far from our minds and you are always in our hearts.
We love you so much and can't wait for our relationship to develop with you.
Much love to you,
Lisa and BF
