Thank you to each and everyone of you for reaching out and helping me with my daughter. (((GROUP HUG))) Was a huge, emotional day today and after all the tears, after all the worry, the biggest shock was actually getting to this homeless shelter and seeing the people she will be hanging around with, sharing sleeping quarters with...it broke me to the biggest tears ever. These people are truly the homeless, the drug and alcohol addicts. What is she thinking that gaining any sense of freedom from our rules, that this is better???? I want to tell all parents going through issues like mine, hard as it is, follow through. Out of all her 25 years, enabling her, this has been my most freeing experience with her yet. I love her to my very last breath but wish that it did not take so many years to get tough with her and keep enabling her to continue her lifestyle. In our love for our children we overdo, over coddle, be there for every little scrape, bump, bruise, scrape and have conditioned our kids to rely on us. That was my fault, I did it all. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders tonight, I will sleep like a baby I am sure of it. I thought the worst all day long about this shelter, horrified at the conditions I saw. Know what my daughter text me? "Hey it's not bad at all here please you 2 don't worry about me this will be a good thing" I ask, what's so great about it? "It's chill a lot better than some places Ive been by far!" So this place is chill. She is with the kind of people she loves to be with, against my better judgement. If they are going to be and continue who we don't want, nothing...even good hearted parents.....will stop.
