Leaving soon!

** I have amended this post in order not to offend anyone's feeling, probably they might feel that I am revealing too much and are making their private life too public **

Today is indeed a very sad day for Grandma, Elaine and I because my sis have arrived this morning, not that we do not welcome my sis but rather Nicole will be returned to her father's custody and she'll be staying in Penang on a permanent basis.

This is really heart breaking for grandma because she has taken care of Nicole since she was born and Nicole has never slept without her grandma on her side. Nicole have been Grandma's pillar of support because she was born a few days after Grandpa's funeral. Grandma have been very protective of Nicole all the while (the same as my sis, I guess probably because my sis is so like Grandma in so many ways just as Nicole like my sis, so equals Nicole to Grandma too! Right up to their dimples too)

Many have thought that since Keith's arrival, I have neglected Nicole but in actual fact I have been trying to teach Nicole to act as a behaving sister that Keith would look up to. I have not neglected her in any way but in fact we have even sacrificed a lot for her since we have Keith.

This is not something that everybody want and Nicole is the victim in this circumstance. I might post up a letter to Nicole soon for her future reference, so that in the near future she can read it when is old enough to understand the whole thing from our point of view and not a distorted or a one-sided one.

Grandma, Nicole, Keith, Elaine and I were never given a choice to choose in this matter, as the decision is not upon us neither do we have the right to make it. We just hope that her father would take good care of her as well as honour the weekly/monthly visits that was agreed upon in the deed.

i can understand how heart-breaking it is for you all. But I think all the adults must put up a happy front front for Nicole's sake, because she would be the one thrust into a different environment. so please smile for her and reassure her that with technology these days (mobile phone, easy airfare with AirAsia, and only a 4hr drive), she can see you all frequently.

Peter, i have been waiting for this post to appear on your blog. My 6th sense tells me it is something to do with Nicole. Lets just hope she will be fine and soon find her happiness in her current life one day. I hope her parents make the best decision for her :)

Hope Nicole can adapt well. Look at the positive side, it may be a blessing in disguise.

Kids adapt well, she will be fine. I'll pray for Nicole to be well with her dad. :) Do take care!
