This is a beautiful film clip. I found it on the Missing Persons of America website, which was forwarded to me by Nigel Keyes, who wrote the music. It honestly brought me to tears.
A lot has been happening at home lately, Michaela. Your baby brother, Robbie, who hasn’t been a baby for quite awhile now, became engaged and moved from our home into his own home. I had an astounding realization recently, which is that if you have children, they could actually be adults or near adults now. It’s not impossible that you could be a grandmother now….
All I know is that looking at this video, at your beautiful and innocent little face, it just breaks my heart that such innocence could have been betrayed by someone who thought they had the right to steal you away from your family and your life.
I love you, Michaela, so much that it hurts. Please, I beg you, if you can’t come home, contact me. My heart just aches for you.
