Over the years, I have managed to convince myself that my life is much better than it would have been had I made a different decision. I was at the beginning of a great journey, aching to discover unseen worlds, and you were going to change everything—be in the way. I couldn't hold onto you. And yet, I couldn't let you be with anyone else. I will always wonder if I was selfish to end your voyage before it even began. After all, another family would have loved you just as much.
