“She was like a drowning person, flailing, reaching for anything that might save her. Her life was an urgent, desperate struggle to justify her life.” ~ Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

For Boo,

I understand. I really do, even though sometimes if may not seem as if I do. And those things that I don’t fully understand or know, I’m trying to find out so that I can offer you the support system you so desperately need. I don’t want you to feel the pain of this in between, don’t want you to be constantly at war with yourself. No matter how you try, your face is a mirror to this ongoing siege in your heart, and mind, and body, and though I cannot offer you all that you need, I am willing to do whatever it takes to help you on this journey.  You are beautiful. You are beautiful. You are beautiful.  Just know that I love you no matter what, with all of my heart, always and forever.
