Today is Christmas, and although I am enjoying the holiday with family, there are many people who are not here, who I miss greatly. My son, Alex, lives a few hours away with his family, including his three little girls. I talked to them on the phone a little while ago, but it would be so much fun to be able to spend the holiday together! My mother, who left us eight years ago … I miss her so much!
But the person I miss most of all is you, Michaela. You are here with us in our hearts, always a presence in our lives, every day including Christmas. But … well, where are you? Are you still alive? What do you do on Christmas? Is there someone to love you and buy you gifts? The day you were kidnapped was not long before Christmas, only a little over a month….
This week I am supposed to receive news. I have no idea, no inclination, what it will be. But if it this bone is not you, if you are still alive, if you read these words, I just beg you please to make contact with me. You can do it anonymously by leaving messages on this blog if you are not comfortable revealing where you and and who you are with. I really just want to know that you are okay.
So … Merry Christmas, Michaela, wherever you are. Remember, I love you forever.
