Dear Holly,

I don't know about you, but I think I got heat stroke yesterday sitting out under the sun. I felt weird for the rest of the day.

Today is our first official day without you. Yesterday, we loaded up your parents' car with your things and said tearful goodbyes. You guys were smart, and distracted Noah with the Buzz Lightyear sprinkler, which he loves. I know that Noah doesn't really understand that you won't live with us anymore. He thinks your parents are "just visiting" and that you "will come to church with us" today. I saw how happy you were to be with your mom and dad, and that made letting you go ten times easier.

It was such a pleasure having you stay with us these past two months. You are an amazing young lady. Your parents have done a terrific job molding you into the young lady that you are today.

Please drive safely as you go back home. Our house is always open to you and your family, and hopefully one day, when everything with Juliana has calmed down a bit, we will come and visit you and your wonderful family.

Good-bye, Holly. We miss and love you.

P.S. It's not just us four that miss you. Liam asked Jaime if you were coming to Florida with all of us this summer.
