Dear Joseph and Lucia,
I just want you to know that I’ve never given up on you two.
After the divorce, I was ordered to stay away from you guys. I can only know what’s happening with you through grade cards. And even those have all the location information whited out.
I recently tried to get more information, but the law is preventing me. It’s very frustrating. Every time I think there is a way to reach you, I’m stopped. I don’t have enough money for a lawyer, so I’m just swinging things on my own.
If your cousin in New Iberia is reading this, I hope she will let you know I think about you two every day. It’s not easy being a father without his children. I love you two so very much.
My only avenue is to write these letters to you openly in the hopes that one day you will know how much I care for you. Until then, just know I’ve been waiting.
