Nick Wright re his missing son Paul.

My heart goes to Nick Wright and his wife. Raw emotion pain. A very brave man. So proud of him for sharing his story. I have lost a child to illness and a son called Paul Who is in Cambodia who goes missing from time to time. I totally relate to his pain. Life goes on and people expect that of you. But unless you have experienced that sort of loss and pain for many years you cannot understand. Do not doubt yourself Nick as parents we can only do what we feel is best at the time with our children. None of us are perfect.all I can say is hearing you and your story I have no doubt you and your wife are wonderful people and great parents. Don’t be so hard on yourself. This is not your fault. Our children make choices and sometimes these choices turn out the wrong way. Believe in yourself and you and your wife look after yourselves and have some good times. You deserve it. Dianne. Xx
