Fourth visit to Iwaki. Best one yet. Overjoyed.
I am still overjoyed by my visit yesterday to see my wonderful daughters. Julia was there but she was too fast to get a still photo of her. She is so cute and very funny (4 1/2 years old). Rion and I spent an hour together during which she talked with dad and drew a fabulous picture of a frog and eggs and 3 tadpoles named Rion, Lauren and Julia! (too cute).
Taiko gave me a hug, said she was sorry and was very nice to me for a few short minutes. She allowed me to have copies of the girls report cards (90% A’s, the rest B’s) for both Rion and Lauren. I will visit my daughters again, of course, in the new year.
I am a very happy daddy. I am very grateful to have three beautiful daughters whom I love with all my heart. I cannot describe in words the joy I feel having spent time with my family. It has been too long. I told Rion that I love her forever and always and that if she were living on the moon or even Mars I would follow her there.
If it were not for the help of many wonderful people none of this would have been possible, first and foremost amongst them, Mr. Dennis Gunn. A finer human being you will not find.
NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE IN. Go see your kids, wherever they are.
