I made that call last Friday in hopes of being able to speak to him on the phone, hear his voice for the first time in over 8 years and share my successes with him one last time. But, I wasn't able to speak to him. Don't get me wrong. I've tried many times before, just wanting to let him know that I'm happy with where I am. I figured he'd enjoy knowing that I was married, own a home and looking to have children.
This is where I stand. I made one last attempt and it didn't make it through. Now, there's no making that call. It just can't happen.
