We have a daughter.
We got her when she was 8.
Today is her birthday.
It's the big one today. The big 1-8
It's cloudy and overcast outside.
That's the way it feels on my insides.
Today, I had envisioned years ago,
A bunch of giggling girls at my house
College days that had just begun
Going to get pedicures and manicures
Watching a little girl turn to a young woman.
Alot of those dreams and visions started changing about 6 years ago.
Something wasn't right
We all could see it but no one knew what to do
The anger. The agression. The rage. The hurt.
We thought we knew everything.
We DID NOT and were NOT TOLD everything.
He knew EVERY DETAIL.
Today was suppose to be a happy day.
A day full of excitement and looking forward.
Instead, today was spent in a court room.
A Father and a StepFather stood, with a case worker, a public defender
A judge, police and a young woman that is paving a road for herself standing before that judge.
Today she was sent to get help by court order.
Today she starts her adult life.
Today she starts with that life of being court ordered.
We are shut out by her.
Our hands are tied and we have to wait and watch
We HAVE TO WATCH AND PRAY!!!!
Pray that she will realize
Pray that the Lord just gets a hold of her and sends her in the other direction.
Does she realize we still love her? I so pray that she does.
No matter what happens....
She will always be our daughter.
We will pray and we won't stop.
We will help if she will let us.
If you ever get to read this T----
We love you.
Yes, We have a daughter!!!!!
Happy Birthday Sweetie.
