My dearest Adelle,
I am so very deeply sorry that I cannot be there today. I am so proud of you! You are Two! That's a pretty big step for such a little girl. I know you are a big girl now that you are two, but you will always be MY little girl.
I can't explain in words you will understand why I can't be home for your big day. I don't know if I can explain in words I could understand. Maybe someday I will be able to explain it to you.
Mommy sends me pictures of you a lot and I save all of them. I sometimes cry because I miss you so much. When I look at your pictures it makes me sad because I can't hold you and give you kisses and tickle you and hear you laugh. But it also makes me very happy to see you smile and see how big you are getting and how long your hair is getting and how blue your eyes are. You are really starting to look like mommy and that's good because it means you are pretty. Just
don't be crabby all the time like mommy and you'll do fine. (I love you honey!)
Happy Birthday Sweetie. I'll see you as soon as I can. I love you.
