Keep thinking of you… stick to your guns because if you back down now, you won’t do it again.

I wonder how things would have worked out if I had kept on going way back when, before Jim was born.
Dad didn’t say too much. I told him about gong out to dinner and meeting your friends, etc. Maybe he might be a little more willing.
Keep with the friends… but don’t say too much… sometimes you wish you hadn’t afterwards. Take it slow, make sure you protect yourself, and get to see a lawyer.
Will phone on the weekend.
