Children

Solome Anderson recently wrote a letter to her father, whom she has never met.  Terry Anderson's daughter, born a few months after his capture in Lebanon five years ago, hopes her father gets this.

My darling daddy,

   Tomorrow's my birthday - I'll be five years old.  I know you have never seen me and I also have never seen you, but my Mommy tells me everything about you and how you used to call me the active little baby.  I like listening to stories about you - they make me happy.  Mommy says you'll soon come to us.  I'm sending you my picture.  I want you to like it.  I love you daddy and I pray for you and the others every night.

   Love,

   Solome Anderson
