Happy Birthday Sage
« on: May 14, 2009, 08:14:03 PM »
Dearest son,

Two years ago today you came into this world and into our life.  A day I will remember until the end of mine.  I have no words that can express the love I had for you then… and still have for you today.  On that day I swore that I would always be there for you.  In me you would find your strongest ally and advocate and, in the years to come, you would be surrounded by love, peace, safety and all the happiness that I could give you.  I would not make the mistakes of my father.  I would never leave you and would always be there to teach you the lessons of life and manhood that I had learned on my own.  I looked forward to helping you understand all about the new world that now surrounded you and that you looked upon with such wonder.  Had it been within my power you would not have learned some of the harsher realties of life until you were much older, but, as it turned out, the passing of time has found us separated, and I am unable to celebrate this very special day by your side.  Life sometimes has a way of taking us down paths we wish not to follow.  This path was not my choice but rather one I have tried change with every fiber of my being, but, as my absence shows, I have failed to do so… just as I failed to recognize the forces at work which would lead to the possibility of this situation ever existing.  

There are some bonds that time and distance cannot break.  My love for you is one of them.  I look forward to the day that we can be together again and hope I will never miss celebrating another of your birthdays with you.  Though we are apart my thoughts are with you today and everyday.  In spite of the circumstances, I hope you find yourself surrounded by people who love you as much as I do and have made today as special for you as it is for me.  

Happy Birthday my Beloved Son,
Dad

That was beautiful Carlos. I hope you've saved a copy of that for Sage to read when he reaches those "trying teen years", and you're having philosophical differences about life.
I'm sure by then you will be together and will have healed from this horrible nightmare.

Happy Birthday to you Sage.

Carlos, what a nice letter!!!! I am so sorry for what you are going through, it is harder for you than it is for your son, who is too young to understand, but someday he will... and you will be there for him as usual!
 
Parabens Sage!!!

Yeah, i'm good.  Thanks for asking.  Birthday's and holidays are always hard.  I took Sage's bday off work and stayed home.  I had no motivation or desire to work that day and wouldn't have gotten anything done if I'd tried.  

Thank you all for wishing Sage a happy bday :)

I hope someday to know how it actually went.  I still don't get any pictures or information about how he's doing and my emails go unanswered.

Praying for you today, Carlos, that this is the last birthday you will miss and that long before this time next year you and Sage are reunited -- and that every day (not just birthdays), you'll be able to show your son how much you love him.

Stay strong, Carlos.

Happy birthday, Sage.  :birthdaycake

Had tears in my eyes reading this.  Hoping that he will soon know how much you love him.  Even though I don't know you or him personally, I wish him a very Happy Birthday.  Stay strong Dad!  Will pray for both of you.
