To the little girl who lived next door.

I know we haven't been neighbours for nearly a year now but ... 

Today I found out what your dad gets up too.
Today I found out you had been taken into care.
Today I watched a video.
It made me sad, disgusted and ashamed.

I am sorry we joked that he looks the sort and never really did anything about it.
It really is not a laughing matter! 

I always thought you were a pain in the bum.
 I never gave you the time of day that you were so keenly trying to get from me.
I didn't see it then, but I do now.
Now it's too late.

I quickly judged you from the moment I met you.
I am sorry, truly I am.

If I could go back in time and give you what you needed, I would!

I am sorry for what your father is.
I am sorry you have become "part of the system".

Hopefully you will get the life you so truly deserve, stability, love, care, and positive role models to look up too.

I am keeping my fingers crossed and holding my breathe that it comes back that he never touched you like that.

I should never have judged you, and I should have been nicer.

You can never tell the battles that people are battling and you should never add to them.
Today that lesson has hit home hard!
