Dear Charles & Dayna McPhail,
Thirteen years here I stand, we all stand, from what was somewhat of a disaster of a reunion between a biological daughter and her birthparents. As I had known I wanted to meet you all my life and with the pressure I was placing on my adoptive parents at the time, they felt they could not wait any longer. I do not want you to think it was solely their idea for me to meet you at such a young age, but I am partly to blame as well.
If I could go back, I would have waited till I was at least in my mid-twenties and much more capable of handling such a situation. I however, cannot go back and change what happened, except to move forward. To realize we are not family, we will never be mother and daughter, etc.
I will always love you though, that will never change.
