Dear Grandson,

This is my first imaginary letter to TomTom. Now that I've written it, I want to write a completely different letter, a real one.

Hi _______,

Your mom tells wonderful stories about you. She's a good story teller and she thinks you're marvelous. For a long time I held back, knowing you have quite a few grandparents. You're their only grandchild.

I held back, wanting to get right with your mom first. She and I had a lot of hard times trying to get to know and accept each other, as you know. The old saying "Time heals all wounds" plays in here. It took a lot of time & work for her and I to get this far.

We're each doing the best we can here. I wish I could have known you better before. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. I want to be your friend. I'm coming to visit for her birthday. I hope to see you then too.

This really resonated with me on another level. A lot of my fantasies now days have to do with me being able to introduce my first mom with my son, and the two of them looking very much alike and being very close. Maybe someday, God I hope someday...

Deat Ungrateful,

Waiting for someday can be hell.

I love what you do on your blog and pray for your investigative activities.
