Dear Young Texan,
I am not sure how to address you. I do not know your name. I do not know your gender. I do not even know, definitively, whether you will grow up in Texas. Many years will pass before you will be old enough to read this. But with a few clues, I hope that this open letter can reach the right person:
- Your mother is Texan.
- You have three older siblings.
- You were likely born around March 15, 2022 (your due date).
- Your mother was incarcerated at the time of your birth, about seven months into a five-year sentence. Her conviction was probably drug-related.
