Very real
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Very raw and very real, Jennifer. You gave up your son so self-lessly; a decision that must have had some serious emotions attached to it. I have a lot of respect for you.

I can tell you will have a great deal to share. I'm looking forward to reading more. I won't be able to comment on all of your postings, but I will be reading with with a combination of interest, heartbreak and sadness; this I can tell already.

I'm out of town now for a week, so my online time will be erratic and limited. Please understand if it takes a bit of time for some of your postings to go live.

Again, welcome.

Oct 22 - I tried to help you best I knew how. I hope you'll be Ok with no one to watch over you. You just can't keep re-living the past - you have to move on with life. As sad as it makes me feel I have to tell you that if you keep pushing people away you may never find any joy in life. Now we're a million miles apart - I hope somehow you will find some piece of mind. I will always be there for you,

Love always,

your husband

Stephen
