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.

Awesome news!
I am VERY happy to hear that she is thinking more clearly. I think you're doing the right thing all the way around and the fact she called is evident.

She got a taste of freedom living at the ranch and now that it's gone, she's having a hard time adjusting to "living in Mom's house".

The plan you set up and presented is reasonable and sound and the fact she called and wants to see you and come get her says that she knows in her heart that she is loved and wanted.

You know as well as anyone that teens in foster care grow up quickly and while they have issues they aren't the "typical" teen.

I'd still like to see that guy under a jail somewhere benig punished in ways I can't describe, but that's for another time.


When things get better, I'd love the chance to sit down with you and talk about the foster care system, what it's like to adopt from the FC system and etc. (my husband and I are starting down that road in Jan.)
