A few months ago, when I checked my e-mail, I had a message from you. I did a double-take: MN e-mailed me? Personally? To say some really nice, supportive, flattering things? Me?! Really?! Yes, it was true. I felt like the coolest kid on the block.
As you know if it were at all possible, I'd build us a house full of light, far away from the losers, where we could watch the kids play and lean on each other. All I can offer now is my virtual support and ear. Your love for your daughter and your determination to make a good life for her and yourself despite so many obstacles are admirable. There are many people out here pulling for you. You're a tough cookie. We'll help in any way we can.
I still can't believe you e-mailed me.
