The dreams for tomorrow …
Dear Guillianna and Elijah –
The days continue to pass and the intent is clear, the disconnect has continued and the personal feelings and adult decisions continue to impact the innocent little children and many other innocent adults of this family. Today, as we do everyday, thoughts of love, and fun stream to mind and tears continue to stream on the face as they represent what the heart and mind cannot hold inside. Sadness for our children as we look at the value of family which is complexity lost upon some, others who have love for family and are hurt by those who don’t- and the cousins who deserved to know aunts and uncles , who deserved to continue a bond with each other. The loss and number of people impacted by the decisions adults made – the fallout felt by everyone else when one lives with a mindset “to cut people out of lives like paper snowflakes” is so enormous- that it makes it hard for anyone to comprehend.
Yet it is true. What can one do, knowing that innocent people are hurting because of untruths or misguided representations? Despite it all- We can believe. The truth is so powerful while it may never be seen by some, it doesn’t make it less true. The world is very complicated. The problems we all face differ and it is very true that as you two grow you will see and learn so many things. The only way to emerge through any problem you face in life is with dedication committment and hard work, passion for what you do, a belief in your self and with love in your heart, a desire to not only be happy but to try to make better the world around you – leave it just a little better in some way , than how you found it .
Nana and Poppy know as you grow each day you’ll face challenges and the effects of what has been contrived in these past months will have the potential to build within you the drive to take any sorrow or loss and turn it into a positive. Help someone else and yourselves to realize that on this life we are all interconnected. The actions of one person can make positive differences and to look for the good in everything. To value relationships and understand the effects of our choices and actions. There is one thing everyone I know says about Poppy – he is the eternal optimist, He always has put the needs of his kids first and has always helped them. He most certainly did not deserve what he has been forced to bear, yet he still pushes forward. He still treats people with kindness, he still works hard at maintaining his responsibility’s and he shares a smile with all those he meets. He has text messages saved on his phone before olde enough to spell with little emojis … and then first words all about love and fun and the good memories that seem to currently be twisted into something dishonest. The story we hear is that you’re been unhappy – mistreated, lied to , and to be honest the actions taken are indicative of some sort of criminal behavior. To ban people from someone’s life, sends the message that the people banned are evil, have committed something so egregious that they are not worth be present in your lives . Neither Poppy or Nana are deserving of this and one day the manipulation of truth will unfold. The emotional trauma that is caused between the day you left the Mitten and the day you’re able to discover for yourselves the truth, are allowed to admit and remember the love surrounding you for so many years and come to terms with the manner in which this “detachment process” has been handled will likely be a very long and difficult challenge. We will always believe in good and love, in your courage and strength and in your memories that will be fed by the images within the photos on this site and the images imprinted upon your hearts. We love you two, to the moon and back ,
forever and for always ,
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
