I have been searching for Ashley's mailing address. I even had a private investigator acquaintance help out. Of course no luck. My original plan was a ship a small package to her with a couple of pictures, a letter and a small gift, I was going to send this FedEx or UPS so I could get a confirmation.
I jumped the roadblock and sent her a message instead on facebook. Part of my decision to do this was so it wouldn't completely freak her out, another part was so only she received the message and it did not get intercepted. Of course I still haven't received any type of acknowledgement back from the facebook message.
As I was getting my younger daughter ready for her first school dance tonight (another milestone to remind me of what was taken from me) I thought I would google Ashley's name.
You have got to be kidding me!
Right there, in front of me, plain as day...her resume! Complete with contact info!!
I couldn't believe it! Why didn't I find this a month ago? Before she packed up and left for California?
My friend (my daughter's best friend's mom) came to pick up my daughter and of course take pictures. I told her what I just found. Her eyes got really big and she asked if I printed it off. I told her I did. She asked how her resume looked, I told her I was impressed and she listed that she had a 3.5 GPA in college. She reminded me it was too late, I told her I knew. Then she reminded me...Christmas is coming up.
Christmas IS coming up. Maybe in a couple of months I can do another search and maybe find an updated resume. Maybe, just maybe, I can send her a Christmas gift. She knows I'm not Jewish and she knows that I know she went to a Jewish family...so I could send a Christmas present...right?
