Saturday, September 3, 2011: Hi Beautiful! I have to find a way to print Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) text messages she sends me. You have to read them to believe them Sam. She was continuing on with the sentimental stuff from last week. That gets followed up with the usual “how can we fix this?” as if my answer will somehow change after 3-years of being asked. When I mention the criminal case and that relationships usually end after one person falsely accuses another of a crime that sends them to prison, she shuts down. Refusing to talk about the lies she has been perpetrating with Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) and her friend. What a surprise.

Some good fortune come my way this week in the way of a TV station interested in telling our story. A San Diego news channel is doing an ongoing feature on parental child abduction in/to Mexico. Another father who is in my position was the initial focus in a prior segment and he mentioned our case. Amazing given what I was thinking about after reading David Goldman’s book! This may be the very thing we need to fix this once and for all Sam. They want to bring a film crew to the house for an interview then travel with me when I go to Mexico to sign in at the prison,  then off to where Adriana’s house to talk to her. I am excited about the opportunity. I can only hope Adriana is home so they can interview her. I am sure she’ll put on quite a show as she always does. I will let you know more as it unfolds.

As for our visit together, amazing as always. We spent most of the time with the new Lego set brought, building various versions of Samy’s House. You were getting upset at Adriana for interfering with our time together, mentioning it to her several times all on your own. I started to laugh because Adriana was looking at me to help her out. I was not about to touch this. She made her bed. What did she expect? Like I have been saying in past posts, under normal circumstances this would not even be an issue. This is anything BUT normal. So, just to hear you tell Adriana that I was there for you and not her was music to my ears. I told Adriana that even you know that she deserves & needs more time with me than just 6-hours a week. Adriana can deny your emotions when I leave all she wants. We all know the truth. To have her ask me to help in how you present your frustrations to her, she’s on her own there because she did this to herself. You have not been disrespectful, so no need to censor what you say. Keep it up Beautiful!

You have never talked to me that way. Ever. Even though you are 5-years old, you are first and foremost a human being. You have thoughts and feelings just like everyone else. And not listening to you like Adriana does only makes you become more expressive in order to be heard. I get it. By the way, thank you for the pedicure. It’s been a while since my last Samy pedicure. I really miss them. My left foot has pink toes and my right foot has purple toes. I have to take a picture to show you. I love it! And because we practice jiu jitsu barefoot, the guys I workout with will be jealous – no doubt!

You are such an amazing Little Girl Sam. I am so proud of you. More importantly you should be proud of you for expressing yourself and saying what is on your mind. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH SAM! You are always in my heart even when we cannot spend time together. KISSES!
