A day after Christmas, and the inconceivable …
Dear Guillianna and Elijah,
It is the day after Christmas and we are still shocked that the opportunity , the hope and Christmas wish that you’d be granted a call to us for Christmas, came and went unanswered . The chance for you two to see all your cousins and wish great grandparents and us too, happy holidays- missed opportunity at the chance to share in kindness and love from the family you two have always loved and spent these holidays with has vanished from, but despite any holiday or birthday or marking of significant dates you must always know — EVERY DAY we love you from here to the moon and back, forever and for always … and no distance no manipulation of reality or truths, will ever change the memories we have or the love felt for you both .
The fact that small children must disassociate themselves from people they loved so much , to please others , is simply gut wrenching. It’s is all we can do to simply hope hope you had a beautiful Christmas and were able to spread Christmas cheer to new people, maybe some in your daddy’s family and grow and create new loving relationships. We will hope your holiday was full of new traditions, love, laughter and preparations so that the joy you have is able to outweigh the sorrow and loss.
Merry Christmas sweet children and know that our hearts are full with the love for you two and for the love you have always had for us and shown us and wishes for amazing tomorrows ! We hope the gifts given and the gifts received this Christmas make your hearts soar, and that some how some way you can still feel the love we have for you both, despite not being allowed to see or talk to us, despite gifts from us being withheld ! The most important gift we can gift you now is these letters of love that will hopefully one day heal the fractured heart. May you always remember that Nana/Poppy extravaganza glorious love never goes away!
YOU ARE Loved to the moon and back,
forever and for always,
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
