I'm Sorry I trusted him with you. I'm Sorry he hurt you. I'm Sorry I believed him. I'm Sorry you couldn't come back home. I'm Sorry you didnt get to know your Uncle Ricky, your Great-Grandmother or your Great-Grandfather. I'm Sorry you were scared at your visits with him. I'm Sorry I couldn't be there to hold you. I'm Sorry you cried everytime we parted from our visits. I'm Sorry he didn't go to jail. I'm Sorry he only got probation and fines to pay. I'm Sorry even with doing everything I needed, you weren't able to come back home. I'm Sorry the courts failed us. I'm Sorry things aren't the way they're supposed to be. I'm Sorry I can't call you or visit you. I'm Sorry I don't get to watch you grow up. I'm Sorry I can't send you birthday and Christmas gifts. I'm SO Sorry.

Oh Courtney.......this has me crying. I know that they are only words, and that the feelings of your heart are magnified a million times. Your daughter has to be a mini version of you, so based on that I'm hoping that she'll turn out good. And I'm hoping that you have another child.......some day, with the right guy, and live happily......ever after!

Imagine how I was before, during and after writing it.. From what I know about her, she is a mini-me.. and I hope she turns out good too.. I don't know about that.. Too scared of the same thing or worse happening, so keep going back and forth on wanting another or not. But thank you.
When I read this it made me want to cry, but knowing Courtney as I do, I know that she is a very strong willed woman. And although that would kill the spirit of many, it has not killed her spirit, in fact she is a very generous and kind-hearted person. That IS amazing, she IS amazing, isn't she?
