Today my daughter turned 18. Today I have an adult daughter rather than a child.
Until today I had a need, an obligation and a responsibility to do absolutely all in my power to stay in her life and try to help her if I was worried about her welfare. I was worried and I still am very worried. But I know I have done my best. There are those who wanted to help but couldn’t. There are those that could have helped but didn’t. C’est la vie.
Today society deems her an adult and she sets out on her new path which i hope will be overgrown with an enrichment of health and happiness.
I will still always be there for her but from today my role in her life is more about choice than responsibility, expectation or justice.
As I have said before, I aim to focus on the many blessings in my life and be happy and healthy when she decides its time for her to reconnect with what is missing in her life.
From today I will no longer be posting much on facebook about this. Its a whole new chapter. I still will keep my blog at https://sb393.wordpress.com/ though.
She knows we are here waiting with open arms and unconditional love. She is living her life at an exciting age. Now its time for me to get on with mine.
Thankyou to those who have supported us.
