Norfolk, Va. - Wesley Hadsell has been frustrated for nearly five months now sitting in jail for charges connected to his adoptive daughter AJ’s disappearance.

He shared a poem he says he wrote while in solitary confinement the day he found out she was gone.

“An angel in wait you wait no more. God takes the best, he proved that for sure.”

“I`m not a poet, but I love my daughter. I miss her and it hurts and it won`t go away. I could sit here for years. I`m in prison in here. I`ll be in prison out there,” says Hadsell.
