I do love you. So much more than I can ever express. That is why it pains me so deeply to inform you that, this summer, you will be spending your 6th birthday in the company of others. Please know that Mama and Daddy would never ditch you on your most special of days if it wasn't for the most important of reasons. Sometimes, in life, Mamas and Daddies have to make really tough decisions about priorities and how to spend lovely summer evenings. You are our light and our love, but sometimes we just have to follow our hearts and do what we think is best. We'll be thinking of you the whole day, though, sweetheart. Because we love you.
