 It was just wonderful to spend time with Angelina and Brad and the children. I've been waiting so long to hug my grandchildren and it was amazing, they are the most beautiful, loving kids you could imagine and I'm not just saying that because I'm their grandfather, they really are something special.

 Angie and I have been in contact on the phone and by email for some time now. We've been working towards a full reconciliation for a while. Angie had to feel it was the right time to bring me into the lives of her and the kids and after some work she decided the moment had arrived. I hope I get to see them again soon. I want to spend as much time with them as possible.
