I am thankful everyday for our relationship. I am proud of the man you have grown to become. You are one of the most caring and thoughtful men in my life. Im grateful that you are one of my best friends.
I was selfish in my decision to place you. Everyone will tell you I was selfless. But, honestly I wanted to join the military and having you would take that away. What I didn’t know at the time was that placing you would also take that dream away from me. I couldn’t give up on my dream though.
I hid my depression from your family. Your home was my happy place. But leaving you after a visit tore my heart out all over again. I was a wreck on the bus home. I have hid some of my darkest moments from you and most of the world. I never wanted you to see the failure that I was. I went down a path that I am not proud of. I started drinking to numb all of my pain. I was lost and didn’t believe I was worth anything. I wasn’t good enough for you. I didn’t deserve to be a part of your life. There are days I still believe this.
I am thankful that we have an open adoption. I believe that I gave you the best chance at life. I love you!
