Last year your uncle gave me a gift card for my birthday that we could use for you on anything that you might want. I got you a couple pars of shoes, a pair of boots, and some other warm clothing that was soft but seemed like it would last. I was able to try it on you and be sure that you would grow into it well. If you were with me today I would like you to use your boots in the rain, stay warm, and explore a new place close by, under your umbrella, and by foot. Since you are hidden from me by your mother, I will be resting and taking care of myself today. I will also do some more research on your next hearing.
REI does have outdoor gear for girls your age and soon they may move more matching father gear to your area as well. I do want to be with you today and keep you cozy. I do not want you to end up hidden from me for so long that it is uncomfortable for you to see me. I want to make sure that you are spending your time with me and so that I can help make decisions in your life and show you the love that you need from your real father. I am excited to spend time with you and would love to be with you.
Your left behind father,
