(a letter you'll never read)
It's been about sixteen years since you last held me. It's been fifteen since I left the country.
Do you miss me?
I would have liked to grow up with you. To run back to you after a long day at school, to speak your language, to know your name, to recognize your face and voice.
But that wasn't an option; I know.
I know that, with a heavy heart, you cradled me in your arms for a while knowing that you'd have to let me go. You lived in one of the poorest parts of the country.
A year later, I was adopted by an amazing American family.
I'm sure you'd be ecstatic to hear this. I've been given every opportunity I could ever ask for. They've loved me for you, I've an education, I've never gone hungry.
And we've never forgotten you.
You will always have a special place in our hearts.
我爱你 (I love you)
