A collection of videos …
Dear Guillianna and Elijah-
In our photos and videos we have a series of videos that were sent to your mom and dad over the years- always keeping them close to heart, sharing with them special moments every day moments birthday and holiday wishes, activities you participated in so very many memories.
The importance of keeping children close with those they love was something we took very seriously, believed in and were so dedicated to doing for so many years. It was completely worthless to some it seems but to us, it is just another piece of this puzzle that supports the truth and dedication of parents to their child for us and show the love and dedication of two children to their parents. You can always be proud of your time in the Mitten, the love you have in your hearts for your Nana and Poppy and all the relatives who have always loved and supported you both for all of your lives. Our love is sent to you both, today and always, as you begin another new week and surely you’ll have so many things planned.
We are hoping for a perfect Sunday, special memories and while I won’t get any video or see your faces, I bet that the best days for your parents, are measured by the joy that your smiles bring them. We cannot send our own daughter cards or cookies like we used to – but want you to know that this demand to “send nothing” to withhold her children from seeing their grandparents, is a result of the written threats to file harassment charges if we do. Not our wish, and is not representative of what you’ve always seen, felt or known of your Nana and Poppy. It’s always possible she has misunderstood or there are misconceptions have been made and we will hope for truth to prevail. Never did Nana or Poppy do anything to warrant this, we did not fail to send Guillianna Valentine’s Day presents last year when she claimed we did, We did nothing that validates being accused of any wrong doing, and there is no question, something is not making any sense. We don’t know where it originates from, who has said what, or why this has happened, however we do know it’s the innocent children who are left to endure the outcome of this and we certainly hope you will know that with dedication, truth, and integrity you will find that mom and dad love you, Nana and Poppy love you and some day, some way, you will take from all this that has happened, the importance of living with integrity and commitment, family, having communication skills and the ability to believe in yourselves, and have respect for those you love while living the lives you deserve. It’s important that you know and feel 💯 percent that you were loved, you are Good wonderful kids who did not deserve this . You were not ever sad living in the Mitten, and to let anyone encourage you to believe that you were, or tell you that your Nana and Poppy didn’t love you, that we are bad in any way, or that your childhood was sad, or less than what any child could ever hope to have, while mom and dad were working, is simply wrong. We are writing today, and anytime we write, to say we know each day is a new opportunity for you to grow and experience new things. You will change through time and become adults. When you do, you’ll find these love letters and you will know Nana and Poppy have given you these photos and these words from our heart… for it is all we are able to do for you at this point. To keep you from suffering the consequences thinking you’ve lost two people you loved dearly. For you have not. What is most disheartening is how it must be to live with the internal conflict. It is the twofold you that are the ones who have to conform and fall in line to please those you love so much and need the approval of, yet know if you miss us, say you want to talk to us, it could make your parents angry or sad- that is a travesty . I wish deeply you could be able to love us as you always did without fear of displeasing. I wish that your happy movements on new journeys and happy moments of your past nine and six years could be united. Families everywhere are so different. Some love closeness and parents or grandparents on their life , others chose to live independent. One day you will be able to choose what you feel most important and you will be able to make you lives based upon your own decisions. Every single day between now and then we hope you to have peace and contentment knowing that “where ever you go, what ever you do, we going to do it together” maybe not in a physical sense but our hearts are always wishing and hoping for you to have happiness, health, and dreams that you follow!
We love you to the moon and back,
forever and for always,
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
