The words I hadn't dared hope I might hear [or read]
I called my sister K, trying to choke out the words...
'He wants to contact me.'
Surely there must be miracles because this is what one
must feel like.

[I responded by snail mail AND email to be double sure]
A friend of mine lives in my old duplex and phoned me
yesterday to say that I had received a letter from you.
At first I was frightened that it may be bad news but it
was the most amazing news of all. I would be very
honored to hear from Bryan - it is something I have only
allowed myself to half hope for.
Your note was very sweet and I feel so incredibly grateful
to you for taking him and giving him all the things every
child deserves. I would love to communicate with you as
well. My new address is:
Merrily Down the Stream
I look forward to hearing from both of you and I am so
happy you are all well.
and now I wait...
