Dear Olivia,

It may go without saying, but I really, really miss you. Right now you’re having lots of fun with Nanny, and I just spoke to you on the phone for a brief 5 minutes. Saying goodbye was harder than ever. You know exactly which strings to pull on and it’s so upsetting hearing you upset.

I just hope one day you’ll forgive me for all of this so I don’t have to beat myself up about it anymore.

I love you so much, even if I do have to leave you sometimes…
