Quote: “I love you so much,” she said, breaking into tears and frequent shallow sobs, “and I’m gonna miss you so much, Daddy.
I’m gonna miss your hug, your laugh, your touch, your scents, the feel of your hand on mine and you calling me your lamb chop.”

Quote: "A daughter was born to me in 1986. A daughter I've not met nore even know her name. I have taken to calling her Cylia. I
dream of her. She doesn't have a face... it's being blurred, unknown, unknowable. I wonder if she dreams of me... only knowing me as 'unknown'. That's my name on her birth certificate. Two
unknowns to each other."
Quote: "I can still remember the first day when I saw my little son at visitation. He was so small that he couldn't open his eyes
all the way yet. I wished I could have reached out to touch and hold him, but it's always a glass that separates us. ... It's sad that we have never been able to touch each other or give each
other a hug."
