I never thought it would be this way. On this particular day in the history of the world, perhaps we might be Christmas shopping, maybe for presents for your kids. Maybe we'd have a phone conversation, or send each other photos on facebook. That is the way it was supposed to be. Not like this, sitting here not knowing where you are, what happened to you, waiting to find out if a three-inch fragment of bone was once a part of that beautiful, warm little girl I held in my arms.
I miss you so much, Michaela. I love you forever.
