Dear Daddy,
Why have you been gone so long? I’m starting to be concerned now, why you haven’t been sending back. Life’s all good living with mummy & Auntie Tan Tan, but I wish you and Steve was here to watch me grow up. I have grown really big now, I feel like a giant. Mummy has been taking care of me really well, she keeps crying everyday because she misses you, daddy.
You have gained my respect even more now, it was a brave choice of yours to go and fight for your country, to protect your family but don’t worry about us, take care of yourself. I know it wasn’t a choice to either stay or go but even if it was I’m sure you would have gone to make your whole family and friends proud.
Mummy has been telling me good things about the war but I’m not too sure if it’s true. Even if I do hear something bad I let it go in one ear and straight out of the other. I let no worries get to me and I hope no worries will get to you either.

I love you daddy
