Dear Mr. VP,

Today I saw my kid after he’d been with his dad for the week.

We were on the subway on the way home when he said to me, “Mommy, it’s really good to be with you again.”

My kid was gone for less than a week, with his dad, who is a person I trust. What he said to me was still heart-wrenching.

I just read an article about a dad who was reunited with his child after eight weeks. They were separated at the border.

I think that must be like actually having your heart removed from your body.
