Oh, my sweet girl. What I wouldn’t do to step back in time for just one moment. To hold you tight, back when things were simple.

But, today is a new day. A time of beginnings. Your beginning.

You’ve started over before. You can do it again.

My wish for you: You’ve come so far. I pray that you will see this through to the end. Give yourself a fighting chance! You’ve come too far to give up now.

There’s nothing left for you in the streets. You said it yourself. When asked what have you got to lose, you said nothing, except for your family.

So here we are. It’s time. This is it!

This is a fresh start.

This is a time for forgiveness, acceptance, and yes, even joy. You need to believe it. You deserve to be happy!

I look forward to watching you rebuild your life. This is your story to tell.

I can promise you that those who love you unconditionally will be by your side every step of the way. Cheering you on!

To hell with the rest.

With love,
