Whether you are in this world or not, however, I DO believe that you are somewhere. I do believe that you know that my heart is always set on you. But I know that it is not sufficient to assume that anyone knows that you love them. You have to tell them. You have to show them. And so I am writing this short letter to you, just to say those words. "I love you."
This morning, the membership on your facebook group went over a thousand members, which is good especially since it is a pretty new group. I was on the page, reading the posts, but my eyes kept being drawn back to the photo on you in the corner, the same photo that is on this blog. Just look at that face. It has been so long now since I have seen you, but I look at this picture and I can see you, a child with such great depth, such heart, such love. The child who first stole my heart away.
And I just wanted to tell you ... I love you forever, Michaela.
