I traveled with you on your Odyssey. I often wondered what became of you and your daughter and your grandbaby. Now I know that while life has been hectic and chaotic, you are still standing, like the champ you are.

Good to see you still have your sense of humor and your good sense.

OP--Glad you came back to update all of us. Like others I sometimes wondered what happened with your daughter and the baby.

Of course you've questioned your parenting, that's what good parents do. You've done fine in a trying situation. Probably better than most would have. Congratulations on the little sweet granddaughter.

You know, all of the updated responses to my most recent updates are so heartwarming. I never realized that there were many of you that wondered about our journey or even thought about us from time to time.

Thank you for that.

Especially this time of year, it just adds to the warmth I feel during.

I’m not sure if I’ve told you all this. My grandmother that was so incredibly dear to me died on Thanksgiving. She lived with us. We hospiced her in our home. Thanksgivings have changed for me but not in a way of mourning. I’m happy her and my grandfather can be together again. And I look around and reflect on all I have to be thankful for.

I’m adding all of you that have been part of this thread journey. It’s more than that. It’s been a place to vent and receive feedback from some of you that have gone through it, some that felt the same anger and heartbreak I did. And those of you that encouraged and cheered throughout.

I’ve learned that there are a lot of families that face severe challenges and they all handle them differently. I may have held judgement in the past. Silently of course. I no longer do that.

I have a friend whose daughter has gotten herself addicted to drugs. Her journey has been incredible. It’s not over. She’s had to make very tough decisions along the way. Definitely no judgement there. She has two other daughters to consider in those decisions. It’s so amazing how one family member’s decisions can affect the whole dynamic and day to day lives of all within.

Oh my gosh! I’m so happy you updated the thread. I think about you and your family from time to time. I’m thrilled the baby is healthy and happy. I’m happy you get to be a regular grandma. That’s a big relief. I’m sorry to hear that she didn’t finish school, but that happens to young moms sometime. This same thing has happened to a friend of mine. The baby is due in a few months. I’m going to have her read this thread. She’s been wanting them to get married.

I am so sorry to hear about your grandma.

Thank you 😊 I truly didnít realize how many followed this and wondered how we were doing.

I understand her wanting them to get married. Itís puts everything together into a neat box. I too thought, only at first, that they should do that. My daughterís situation is different though. It would have ended in heartbreak for all three of them.

Please tell your friend that I wish her nothing but the best for her family. I hope her roads are smooth on the journey.
