Thankfully since I wrote the blog "The Past Needs to Stay There" the hubby has come around a bit. At first he thought I was reacting out of fear and I told him that was not it at all. Once he read the letter our daughter had written, he knew I was right. It couldn't be mailed. A few days later he finally had a good opportunity to sit down and talk with Maegann about it so she now knows more of the "why" behind the relationship changing. She needed to be reminded of how bad those last 6 months were for her and he also told her that it wasn't just about protecting her. It was protecting our entire family as they chose not to believe us about her brother's autism and food allergies and decided it was just bad parenting. He told her was okay to remember the good times because there were a lot of them. Still need to have her make a thank you note for the money that was sent for her birthday especially since it was believed dd was the problem within the relationship falling apart. That may bring some conversation from Maegann about the talk she and her dad had.
Thanks for all the encouragement and prayers!
