Nine months. Can you believe it's been nine months since your mom blocked us, blocked your grandparents, blocked your aunt and uncle, blocked your cousins and taken you out of the country without informing me or my consent?!? Nine months...
I know so much has happened within this time and I've missed it all. I've missed your questions, your stories, your jokes, your laughter at your own jokes and sometimes my jokes! ;-) I've missed 9 months of your life. I'll never get that back. You've missed 9 months of me telling you that I love you. You've missed 9 months of my support. You've missed 9 months of my help with anything you need whether that's just listening or homework or a problem with a friend. You don't deserve to miss any of that! You deserve my unconditional love and support. You shouldn't miss that even one more day.
That's why I'm still devoted to working through our legal options in Cairo. I don't want to fight with your mom. I don't want to make you feel bad about your parents going to court. I want to spend time with you. I want us to be in each others' lives again. I want to take you places, show you things and ask you what you think of things. I want to do that today, right NOW! I want to hear your voice and hear everything that you've been up to these past 9 months! I want to tell you that I love you!
H and A, you're the most special people in my life. You're the most important people. You're the most precious. I love you both so much and I miss you more than you know.
I can't wait until all of this legal work is over and I can spend time with you again!
Love always and forever,
