My precious child

January 6, 1978 I call it the day of death. I was young and scared. I told your father and he said “what do you want me to do?” I said “nothing I just wanted you to know”. We didn’t speak again for 10 years and that was a brief moment of him saying “I’m sorry”. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wish I would have been courageous and had you. I wanted you I was just so full of fear. Something died inside of me that day. Of all my regrets in life not having you is my greatest regret. I murdered my own child. I am so sorry. Please forgive me. I will never forgive myself. I remember every moment of that day. I love you. I wish I would have died instead of you.
