TIFFANY CALLED!!! SHE WANTS TO SEE ME!!


Tiffany called and talked to the Detective last night.  She was clearly already second-guessing this situation.  She called me this morning and she is willing to let me come and get her.  She still doesn't want to live at home, but I told her that we could sit down with her therapist and her mental health support caseworker and see what alternatives there are to get her in a place where she is safe, but feels more independent.

YIPPEE!!  I know it's not over yet, but at least I know she's OK and (at least for now) she's being more reasonable.  Pray for my wisdom and strength as we try to plan appropriately for Tiffany's future.

THANK YOU WILL NEVER EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE TO HELP ME AND SUPPORT ME IN THIS!!  I have made so many new friends, virtually overnight, and my faith in humanity has grown by leaps and bounds.  PLEASE if ever I can return the good you have done me, don't hesitate to ask.

This is great news!!

I've been spreading the word since lauradake cross posted onto the wench boards. I'm so glad she's being reasonable as far as getting herself someplace safe.

My prayers are still with you!

I'm excited that you have had contact! When your breath catches in your throat, your stomach is doing somersaults, and your heart either hesitates to beat, or is racing...the fact that she is willing to make contact and have you come and get her is wonderful.

Still a long and hard road, but the first step is always the hardest, and she just took it. :)

YAY!

I just heard about this story through my local SCA lists on Yahoo, and I wanted to express how happy I am that your daughter is safe. I hope the worst of it is behind you and that you can happily find a solution to bring your family peace.

Great news!!!
Just keep being the great mom you are.

As for returning the favor, remember all the help next time you see a child has gone missing and spread the word. That would be enough.

Amazing saga and so far going as best it could be for all parties involved. I am just glad she realized coming "home" was the best route. I know you don't really know me, but *hugs*.

She came home yesterday, but unfortunately left again. The police have said there's no point in searching now because she just doesn't want to cooperate. Thanks for caring. Please pray to the deity of your choice for her safety, until she wakes up and realizes that a loving family is better than the streets.

I'm glad she's coming home
Maybe this will be the wake-up call she needed. I know when I was dealing with a lot of problems, it took me some time to find a turning point to find help I needed. This might be hers. I hope so for you. Definitely check into a halfway house type of setting, but in all honesty, she is still a minor and I would definitely let her know her behavior has to have consequences and she can't just run away when things don't go her way.

I know this isn't a mushy lovey dovey comment, but I'm afraid of her running off again. I don't want to see you going through this type of frustration again.

Oh and...
If and when I ever have a child I swear I'm lojacking them till they are 18 if I can find a way to.

The House of Hope of NC
You should call the House of Hope in Clayton. They do amazing things with hurt and troubled teens. It's a christian based not-for-profit residential treatment facility for girls between 12-18. My daughter has been there one year this month and she is not the same person she was when she went in.... she turned 17 in Nov. The home is pretty small... it might be hard to get in .. they also have out-patient, but I don't think it's as effective. j

SO glad to hear she's talking to you. The word certainly got around, as my dentist mentioned it to me at my appointment this morning!

I'm adding you to friends as I'd like to hear how things go with Tiffany. *hugs* as wanted/needed.

Where the heart is.
Wonderful! Home is always a good place to be and she's realizing that.

I'm very glad that you're on the path to getting her somewhere safe. Sounds like the shift from the ranch back home was hard. Good luck with this process.
If she is needing to prove that she can take care of herself, perhaps something along the lines of an outward bound trip would be good for her.

Oh honey...YAY! I'm so glad that she's safe...and learning. Has she ever thought of the military? I mean...it may be a blessing for her...I know that Andreas (the oldest step-brat) has gleaned and gained a lot from it...and it's not for everybody, but MAN, it sure has grown him into a fine young man.

Unfortunately, her bi-polar precludes involvement in the military. She came home yesterday, but unfortunately left again. The police have said there's no point in searching now because she just doesn't want to cooperate. Thanks for caring.

I'll send some angels your way to help you help Tiffany. And I'll pray for your wisdom and strength, too.

HUGS! I am *SO* pleased to hear this... I was thinking of you in bed last night, and I felt good vibes, and I am so glad to know my vibes were right! I agree, you certainly build so many new friends over night!

Oh, nice news. Now that she agrees to talk, the situation will be settled, I hope. Of course you know her age is difficult to cope with, but you're a wise and loving mother and she'll grow up and will understand it in a couple of years. And living apart from her family, Tiffany will have the chance to think more about her parents' love and care, and she'll think much about it and will learn to appreciate it. :)
Love, Marina.
