Another heartbreak, is that today we had a birthday party for our son. My sister said to me, "Do you realize that Dave has now missed everyone of his children's birthday's this year?" Our children's birthday's start in March and go until October. This also broke my heart. Dave loves birthdays. He loves spoiling his children on their birthdays and making them feel special. He would never miss a birthday. It breaks his heart to not be able to spend everyday day with his family especially their birthdays.
Lastly, as I was talking to Dave tonight I mentioned to him that I was thinking about taking our four year olds training wheels off and seeing if he could ride a bike. After I said this, I noticed Dave was very quite and then I could hear him cry. Again my heart broke for my husband and our children. I do not like to hear my husband cry because he can't be here to experience moments with his family.
I try to do my best to make people believe that I am strong and a brave women. But I am definitely not as brave and strong as you think I am. Tonight my heart is breaking for our children and their daddy. When people ask me if I am ok I just really want to tell them that I am not ok. How could I be ok with what is going on with our family and other families in this country? My heart is breaking for all of the children and their daddies. Then, I begin getting really frustrated and asking the questions of Why. Why would the country that we love lock away our daddy/husband for absolutely no reason at all? Why would they want children and families to suffer? Why would they not let him come home?
I continue to ask you for prayers and support for all the families involved. But, also please become more involved by educating yourselves on this issue and make your vote count so that these daddy's don't miss out on anymore birthday's or events in their children lives. Thank you to all of you that do pray and support our families. We are indeed grateful for your love and support.
