Certain thoughts play through my mind on an endless loop since losing my daughter. Several I dare not share with any but my God. I ask questions that I never before contemplated until my family was catapulted into the living hell of sexual predators, courtrooms, political process, and seeking to manage the pain of my loss.
When you become a parent, you cannot imagine life without your kids. When your child is taken from you it shatters your world. You never view anything the same again. You struggle to breathe and learn to live with your pain.
One day before Chelsea went missing, she wrote a paper for her AP Literature class. In her paper she gave us a guide to live by. She felt that life needed honesty and brotherly love, but also needed a daring dash of fearless spontaneity, to pursue what you truly love.
I truly love my daughter. Through this forum, our family will share with you the emptiness we were thrown into, along with our thoughts and feelings we experience each and every day. Children live for their dreams. We live for our children.
