Jason, I miss you little

Jason, I miss you little brother and I am sad to say that your story is summed up in three sentances, while your abusers never endured the torture that they put us through. I will always remember and never does a day go by that I don't think of whom you might be and what you might be doing had you been able to survive foster care. Hugs, love always your big sister.
