A void in my life with a hope for the future


Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I saw my daughter today enter in the court room in handcuffs and shackles. It was the most heart wrenching thing I've seen in my life. I felt I was going to faint. My husband told me to be strong. My daughter had a blank expression on her face. I think she's angry that we refuse to post bail. I know that when her mind clears she will know that we did the right thing. The day she was arrested she was planning to leave town with an acquaintance she met on Facebook.
I feel the punishment doesn't fit the crime because her ex has temporary custody of their children and he knew that she is unstable and binge drinking. He left her on a Friday night and disappeared until Sunday morning when he found out my grandchildren ages 11 and 7 walked over to my house at 4 am not knowing that their mom was out drunk. The hypocrite( in my opinion ) called the police on my daughter and when the police asked me about the incidence I could not lie. my daughter is in jail now not knowing when she will be out. But I know that in our county jail she is safer than out in the streets for now. I try not to think of her but it's so difficult when even the smallest thing, like a bottle of suntan lotion or even my cell phone reminds me of her. We tanned together and we text each other umpteen times a day. I can't wait until this nightmare is over. emoticon

    I'm just catching up on Spark. As much as your daughter's ex contributed to the situation, she needs to take responsibility ultimately for leaving her children unsupervised. I hope by now things are better.
You must be so frustrated in wanting your daughter to turn her life around and being concerned for your grandchildren. I used to work in a detox facility and can attest to the fact that with help, people do get their lives back on track. I pray that your daughter is taking these steps.
Hugs and strength to you.

    So sorry. Tough love is the toughest thing any Mother has to do for her child in situations such as this. Painful. HUGS and prayers.

    I can sympathize with you. Our grandson broke our hearts and is incarcerated. Praying for all of you. J
