Message from Dad
Beloved daughter, I am a sick man and may have little time left to live and embrace you. I love you, and if you can still remember our love, or want to know your father, come and see me and your little brother and sister you have not seen yet, and I will give you all you need to come here. Your grandfather has died of cancer in 2001.
I love you and I have been looking for you ever since you were taken from me. I put up posters like this in Japan. The photo above is of the last day we were together, on 17. Nov 1991 at 4pm.
