Re: Dear Dad ...
Well as a father I would be very disappointed with the contents of the letter.
For a start the lack of ambition or achievements. I mean eloping with only one girl for a start. Then growing and 'trading' marijuana - come on, surely everyone wants a better life than that for his son even at fifteen he should be well up the pecking order of the local, if not nationalm drug dealing gang. This is presumably be due to the lack of mention of guns or gratuitous violence in his life and then the final giveaway surely he would end with some mention of escaping the abuse and deprivation he had suffered in his early life and how he knew now he had been adopted and that there would be no love lost on his departure.
