To my Grandchildren,
I know you are out there somewhere and I am not sure what you know about me. I wonder do you even know that I exist. I wonder if there are times when you ask your mum or dad where I am.
Although I have never met any of you, you hold a little place in my heart, the place that is reserved for grandchildren. I love you because you are all a part of my children, children that I had and that I love. You are the good part of them. The part of them that is good and wonderful.
I do not know what it is like to be a grandmother. I do not know what it is like to hold you in my arms and kiss your sweet little faces. I do not know that beautiful newborn smell that is only there when you are very new. I know that I will never have that blessing.
One day I pray that I will see your beautiful sweet faces and hold you in my arms. One day I pray that you will know how very much I love you all. You may be grown up and not the little ones that you are now, but I will still love you no matter how old you are.
I miss your mum and dad so much and I wish that things could be different. I wish I knew a way to make it all different. But there is no way that I can do that. I have no control over any of that.
I want you to know that I have tried and all I want is a chance to be able to love you and see you and be your grandmother. I would love a chance to see your mum and dad again and to tell them how very much I love them. That no matter what has happened, there is a way for forgiveness and love and peace.
Someday little ones I pray that we will meet and have a chance to get to know each other, but until then you will stay in my heart and always be a part of me.
All my love always
