Merry Christmas, Michaela

Merry Christmas, Michaela! I wanted to send you a picture of our Christmas tree -- ours meaning yours also. You remember how each child always had a special ornament, one dated with the year of birth? Well, I still hang yours on the tree for you every year.

Your ornament, which says "Baby's First Christmas 1979
For some years now we have had a second ornament on the tree for you also. It was made by Vanished Children's Alliance, and colored in by a school child somewhere.

Michaela, we are at Nana's house. You remember where that is? I will be there waiting for you, as always, to come walking through the door, just like I did on that first day after you were kidnapped. And if you don't, whether because you can't or because you choose not to, just remember, wherever you are, there I am, in your heart always.

I love you forever
I like you for always
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be



  1. My only daughter, Lisa, was born in 1979. So this this breaks my heart, in so many ways. But what we've learned is that we have to hang onto each other for comfort and for love. I pray for you and Michaela as I always do, today and everyday and always. My heart remains with both of you. Merry Christmas Sharon and Michaela. I love you both very much. Robin Moffat Painter
