To My Darling Daughter: Baby Said Your Name, We Miss You!

To my darling daughter…

 Today your Baby Brother said your name for the very first time! I am so excited, yet sad I can’t share this moment with you 😦 I think about you every day, and keep you in my prayers. I love you and brother so much xoxox

We miss you!

This is what happened.. Baby & I did the laundry, and wrapped in the sheets was a pair of your fuzzy “Dora the Explorer” slippers that you used to wear. They are purple with Backpack on the heel, in the front is Dora’s head, bobbing with each step. I remember how you used to wear those slippers.. we would dance around the house, and you would wear the slippers with one of my fancy dresses. You liked to kick those slippers off, and thought it so funny when you curled your toes at me and said in a fake English accent, “Sm-el-ll-lll-lll-ll my feet!” (By the way, you have very long feet just like Grandpa– I am sure you will be tall & lean just like he is, maybe stand even 6 feet or more when you are grown!)
So as I was saying, when the slippers fell out, Baby’s eyes lit up. I pointed to the “Dora” and said to him, “Look it’s Sissy!” Baby wanted those slippers on his feet, and I mean NOW. So I put them on and they fit perfectly. He said “Sissy!” clear as day. Was running around and jumping because he loves you so much.
And when Baby fell asleep, he was wearing those slippers…wanting to be close to you. I pray every night that you and DJ will come home soon. I love you both so very much, and cherish everything that reminds me of you.

About Emily Court

It takes "Just Us" To Fight Injustice in Family Court. I blog to raise awareness about problems existing in the family court system, and use my own story as a personal example of how the systemic failures in family court, and the Guardian ad Litem Program, affect families, in an effort to encourage needed reform. Written by a survivor of domestic violence and homelessness working to create a better life for her children, in a stable home free of violence. In her efforts to rebuild her life, she has not only encountered harassment and intimidation from her alleged abuser but faced systematic failures in family court that have empowered her alleged abuser and put her children at risk. She has spent over a decade trapped in family court until her children finally aged out of the system. Through writing and blogging, FCI is working to raise awareness about domestic violence, and the urgent need for family court reform. She is currently working on a memoir titled "'Til Prayers Are Answered".
