I want to thank you all for your wisdom and great advice. I will be attending her graduation along with my younger daughter (her sister). I have yet to turn my husband to come but I think at the very last moment he may decide to come.
With the help of your words here and what has helped me these past few days is to realize that she is still a child. I think she is feeling lost and has caused so much pain to us and doesn’t know how to open the door and get back in touch with us. I know if I did not go to her graduation it would pain me more deeply that I missed this once in a lifetime opportunity. I do not know how she will treat me in front of her friends that have helped her these past few months but knowing that I am there despite all the pain and anger she has caused me will hopefully make her see I am opening the door for her opportunity to work herself back into our lives.
My husband is stubborn as is my teen daughter. The can be Pig headed and will not like to appear weak but hold the higher ground. Even if he does not come, that is OK. As long as I am there.
I also know holding on to anger is not a good thing. Life is too short and precious. Life can change at a moments notice so live each day and don’t turn your back on those you hold dear to you.
Thank you again! You all have helped me so much!!June 12, 2014 at 12:37 pm #58719Laura CParticipant
Age of consent in my state is 16. I have reported this to police, juvenile services and child protective services. They just throw their hands up. Juvenile services counselor said if she is in love she will do things like this. I have never met the guy and I don’t know where he lives. She will be 18 in 3 weeks. Thank you for your advice. I am angry and hurt at all of this and appreciate your feedback.
