    Daughter update march 18


    To day we ( me and my daughter and the social care people) have had a meeting.

    It is now decided that she will be moved to a in lack of a better word. an instution.
    A place were she will stay for a period of 8 to 12 weeks for investigation on how she feels and way she feel it.

    It is a very strict place in the nature about 1 and a half hour car drive from were we live.
    There will be many people, Psychologist and such around here 24-7 and she will have schooltime and
    everything from morning to night in strich schedules.

    On the up side there will be horses there for her to take care of.

    She is heartbroken to go, she does not want to leave the emergancy foster care home that she is living in right now.
    But I am optimistic about it. It sounds like a place that she needs to get to the bottom with what it is that makes her feel so bad.

    I think it might be the right thing to do right now.

    Fingers crossed.

    Hugs Annika

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    It sounds like they are taking this seriously - good! I hope it works for her, that she can give it her best try. We only get one life, I'm sure she will treasure hers, with time. Got you in my thoughts always, Annika! Kram kram.

        sometimes we just have to let go, and trust that the higher powers that be know what is best. Although the foster care may be nice, the professionals feel she needs more. This is their job and we just need to trust them. Perhaps the structure will help her get where she needs to go.

        I think about you and your daughter often and offer up prayers for both of you. Hang in there. I once read a saying ---you don't always get what you want, but you get what you need.

          Annika.. I am so glad things have come to this point.. as I said before.. I've walked this walk.... the ONLY way to get any success for a situation like this is to have her observed over a period of time by professionals, with little or NO outside contact..most of the time it is a chemical imbalance, but to get to the root it takes time and proper diagnosis... You are a very strong woman to do this... It's extremely difficult to let go this way , and trust... especially when the child is hurt and angry over it... but follow thru and let the Dr. do their job... hopefully they will be able to get her to understand what's bothering her or what is her trigger... for my son is was alcohol addiction, but all of this begins with something.. and NOW THIS... it's NOTHING you DID... sometimes the "chromozones" just don't create things in a perfect way!!!,, but it can be worked thru... Hang in there.. I'm praying and thinking of you daily!!! Hugs, B

            Thinking of you and your daughter! How hard it must be for both of you. She must be in a place where professionals are managing her care so she doesn't try to harm herself again. Prayers that this step will help her life her future life in peace and happiness!

                Same here, praying it all works out for the best.

                Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

                    Hugs to you and your daughter. Sounds like this will be good for her. I think 8-12 weeks is a really good start. Take good care of yourself during that time. You deserve it.

                      You are in my thoughts and prayers Annika!

                        Annika, my prayers for you and your daughter continue. I pray that she receives all the help that she needs at this facility to leave happier and healthier. I think you have made an excellent decision for your daughter and for your family.

                        I was so happy to read that there are horses at this facility. As a horsewoman myself and someone who does volunteer work at a local hippotherapy center, I know firsthand the power of these wonderful animals to assist in the healing process. God bless and take care of yourself during this time too.

                            I'll be keeping both of you in my thoughts and prayers.
