To be honest, not sure how to reach you. I don't know if you're out of range for this message or not. I don't know if you still have the same contact info. You left with no warning. I didn't have the chance to ask. Well, now that things have settled down a little, I guess it's time to at least try.
A lot has happened since you vanished on us. Remember the partner I mentioned in my last letter? Probably not. It was almost a year ago. In any case, we married. He lives with me now in our old home. Don't worry. I left your room alone. I knew you'd absolutely kill me if I did anything to it.
Mom hasn't been back in a while. I don't know if that's a good thing, or a very bad thing. There is no middle ground with her. She missed almost my entire pregnancy and hasn't been by to see her grandson yet.
...Oh. Right. I probably should have mentioned that to you before. Well. There you are. I had a baby. A little boy. And I adopted another. There are two little ones at home now, waiting to meet you. The older one is named Ryker. He's a Togruta. Found him wandering Tattoine, of all places. I know I probably should have, but I never could let a kid go hungry. You know how I am.
You'd like him. He's like you, you know. Space magic. It's a little scary. I'm always nervous that someones going to pick up his scent and come after him. But it's not like I can abandon him. He is my child in every way but blood. Aliit ori'shya tal'din. I know you'd understand if you were here.
But anyways, about the baby.
Remember when Calico would tell us stories about the war? His brothers? I remembered he said a lot about Galaar. We never got to meet him, of course. That was before we came along. But I always felt a connection. It's why when I found out I would be having a baby, there was only one name I wanted to give. We call him Gal for short.
He's a strong baby. Ryker says he hears what he's thinking. That the baby is actually 'talking' to him. I'll need to have a chat with the boy about making things up. I don't know if I mentioned before, but my husband is a chiss, so our son is half. Just wanted to prepare you for the day you come back home. Don't want you to be shocked by all the blue.
I don't want to worry you, but I had a few close calls since you left. First the battle on Muunalist. Almost died of bloodloss on that one. Then there was Gal's birth. They had to cut him out of me. You don't know pain until you've been in labor for twelve hours, then have your stomach cut open. Unfortunately, it's a long healing process, so I'll be out of commission for a while.
What I'm saying is, Cor, if you do get this-
Never mind. Don't die.
