Today is my son's 21st birthday. Because he had gotten into a little trouble, he was in jail at the time I moved to Egypt and I never got to properly say goodbye or see him. I've talked to him on the phone once since I came after running an ad in the newspaper in Princeton to find him. I told him that I wanted to go home and get him a passport and bring him back to Egypt with me. He was happy about that and said he would love to visit Egypt. But unfortunately, it looks like I won't have enough money to go home this summer or to buy a ticket for him to come. He is out of jail now, and I think he is back staying with friends, but I have been unable to call him yet and my friend in Oakland City has not seen him around town yet. My emails to him go unanswered.
Just want to tell him happy birthday. I love you very much. I miss you and Sierra misses you too. I hope that you are safe and are doing well. I hope you were excited to get the letter from "NJB" and I hope that you keep your promise to stay out of trouble once and for all this time. I also hope that one day soon, I can keep my promise to bring you to Egypt. We would love for you to come. W asks about you all the time and can't wait to meet you.
I don't know if he will see this website - but anyone reading from Evansville, Indiana, in the Oakland City - Princeton area, or Vanderburgh and Gibson County - if you see him or know him please tell him to email me.
