Dear Austin

It has been over 3 years since we have been allowed to talk or see you and we really miss you. We know that when you are able to make your own choice, you will contact us and we will be here for you. Just because we have not been able to be with you or talk with you, we are here and always will be.

We want you to know that we have attempted to call you, to see you, and to send you letters, we have apologized, we have pleaded, we have cried, but they have all been refused. This has never been our choice, we never wanted to be apart from you and we have not and never will leave you for any reason.

Life has not been the same without you, we miss you every day and every new place we go, we wish you were a part of it. We have postcards from all of the places we have visited, just couldn’t mail them to you without an address but we are saving them for you when we are finally able to see you again. We understand that this may not be until you are old enough to make your own decisions. We also know that if you could you would definitely contact us and that it is ok because we will one day again be able to share that special bond we always had, after all you will always be our first grandson and nobody can ever take that away.

We know that you are hurting daily, just as we are and yes, we do hear your prayers and your angels are there listening. Always know that we will never give up hope that we will one day soon be reunited once again.

Love always, Nana & Papa

This is a very sad situation and we are also in the same place. We also have quite a few friends that have sad stories with family. It is a bad situation that family is sometimes your worst enemy. We just continue to pray and hope as you in the future the outook is a lot brighter.

Thank you. It is always nice to hear that we are not alone but in this situation, we would rather have less people who can relate to this DRAMA! Hope your situation gets better soon, if you ever need to vent drop us an email!

had friends in the same situation -when he was 15 he called them. you are right when the day comes and he is able to contact you - he will!! kids are smart - they know exactly what is going on.
my heart aches for you both - have 2 grandkids and can't imagine how difficult it is. May God bring you back together one day...Joan

OMG...I can't fathom not being able to see any of our 5 grand children. I really feel for you as I can not bear to be away from mine for any long period of time. Makes travels tough, but have decided to remain in the Florida/Georgia area after this stint in Texas. Good luck and I truly hope that your situation changes for the better, and soon.
