This is the hardest part for me and I am still struggling with it. My teenage girl is 17 and should be having the time of her life in High School, having a boyfriend, going out with her friends, participating in activities in school, working, going to prom,and making all the great memories that I did. My heart is broken for her. When I think back to my High School years, and realize she has missed the sweetest times her life, I break down. I wanted this so bad for her. I hope and pray she will find happiness and personal fullfillment and enrichment one day. But boy, has she missed out on some wonderful years.....
