...have never had a daddy to want to dress up like.

...don't know what it's like to sit in Daddy's lap and be silly.

...have never held tightly to mama's hands and danced.

...have never felt the warm, gentle, safe touch of Daddy's hand.

...don't know what it's like to peacefully sleep next to mama.

...children are living as orphans, and that's just not o.k.
