Dear Paige,
I have to tell you. It is so hard for me to see you like this.
I know it’s hard with your parents and all, and with your
brother doing the things he does. But Paige don’t go down
this path you don’t want it. Though the people around you
are doing it does not mean you should pick your own road
become who you want to be. Not someone others pick for you.
Please Paige make the good choice, please.

Love you always

- Drina

Dear Paige,
Have you made the choice I know its big. Listen If you want to
talk I am here just down the street. You may not want to talk
that’s okay too.

Love you always


Dear Paige,
I want to tell you something that is true you were my best
friend. When we were little you had the most amazing voice
and a little bird told me that you played the guitar. You should
chase your dream no matter how far away it is.


Two years later

Dear Paige,
Just bought your CD I love it so glad you actually did it
I am so proud of you. Thanks for the tickets and backstage
passes to see you in concert cant wait.


Dear Drina,
Thank you for every thing you gave me the courage to become this person.
When I wake up in the morning I still think I am going to be stuck at home in
the same life of some girl who if she had stuck on that path would become a drug addict
or something else. You gave me the courage to shine.

Love you always
