Seth and Aiden, I hope one day you stumble upon this and read it, and realize that what you have gone through is not your fault. You were always both good kids, and you are both growing into strong and intelligent young men with good hearts, and I am very proud of you. Your sister Haley misses you both very much, and she hopes very much that she can be reunited with you one day.
You have both been on my mind and in my heart every single day. While I cherish my memories of you, missing you has been almost unbearable. My door and my heart will always be open to both of you. Please believe that I don’t blame you for any of this, and I’m so sorry for what you’ve had to go through. I am also sorry for the mistakes I have made along the way, and I hope you can find peace and healing from the hurts I have caused by failing you.
Remember to be kind and forgiving to each other, and always encourage each other. You are brothers, and you are both my sons, no matter what. I love you both – yesterday, today, and always.
With love from your father
This is the family that is patiently waiting to be back in your life again. You already know most of them. They are:
(Top row) Me, Uncle Willey, cousin Ernestine, your Uncle Scott, Julie, cousin Barbara, your sister Haley, and Grandpa John
(Bottom row) Grandma Jane, cousin Thomas, Panda (the dog), your Aunt Amanda (who will soon be giving birth to another cousin), and Aunt Trice.
