Dear Faith,

Mother & Daughter relationships can be so tricky and so hard. Look at Mie-Mie and myself. That is a very tumultuous relationship. One I don't care to have with you and have tried so very hard to not have with you. I can honestly say that what you and I share is so different, so special and so very precious to me.

You and I share a bond unlike any other. We talk to each other about things, we are honest with each other about things and we aren't afraid to tell the other exactly how they made us feel....good or bad. I always want this relationship with you. I know that in the coming
years lots of things will change. You will change. You will grow and become more independent than you are right now. The one thing that
will not change is my love for you...ok, except that it will grow right along with you. What I don't want to change is our trust, our ability to
talk to one another about anything and everything & our open and honest relationship.

I know we will argue and I know we will disagree but I always want us to remember to have respect for the other person. After all the yelling
and all the tears...and there will be many shed by both...I want you to know that I am ALWAYS here for you. There is nothing you can't tell me,
there is nothing you should fear. If you talk to me with honesty and respect, I will talk to you back the same way. I am always here to help you problem solve, give you moral support, give you a shoulder to cry upon or just hug you in silence.

Having a close and special relationship with you means everything to me. You are my favoritest girl in the whole, wide world! I have told you that from day 1 and it will never change. We have so much to look forward to and I can't wait to share it all with you. Good or bad, love, I am here for
you. I love you with all my heart.

Always and Forever
