My answer

I wrote her back. Most of my letter was simply news from home, what is going on in everyone's life here. I wanted her to know she is still part of the family, but also what she is missing out on. I told her how sharing love just makes it grow, and that when I remarried it did not mean I loved her any less. And I wrote about how small she was when she was born, and what a fighter she was in the ICU struggling to breath for her first few hours of life. I think about that a lot, the image of my newborn daughter, still covered with blood from her birth, laying in an oxygen tent as we waited to see if she would live. I feel a bit of that again now - waiting to see if she is going to choose life over the self-destructive path she was on.
