Drew, if you're reading this please know one thing, without a shadow of a doubt. We love you. I love you. With all my heart and soul. We want you to be happy and warm, with a roof over your head and food in your belly. We want you to find love and feel like you belong. We want you to follow your dreams and be content. If you have found that where you are, then I am ok. I will not make you come home to your family here. I will not force you to be where you don't want to be.I just want to know...are you happy. Are you safe?
It's been a while since we saw you last. I understand that you were following your heart. It's hard for me to let go. The hardest thing always has been my inability to protect you. Protect you from the world and heartache, physical pain, injustice, lack of understanding and ignorance. That's why I'm writing your story. I want people to understand. To know that you are special. You have the kindest heart and love your family.
We, I, hope to hear from you soon. It's getting harder each day that goes by that I don't hear from you. Your family...me, Mom-Mom, Derek, your Dad, Alissa, Peter, Amy, MISS YOU. You know where to find us. We are here.
