In a little less than two months, Michaela, you will have been missing for 26 years. In all that time, if you are alive, I think it might have become harder and harder to even believe that there was a life before the one you live now. But there was. And this is what I am praying for, that God will bring these things to your mind, that he will tell you that I love you, and remind you that he loves you, that you will be freed. And if you are free, and you want to remain where you are, then all I ask is that you contact me, free me from this not-knowing and from all the dreadful imaginings that fill that not-knowing, and just let me love you, from near, from far … just let me love you.
