incredible to hear you reflect on such an incredibly painful year and take the learnings, and hopes you have into 2019. Thank you for sharing, and
@sunflowermom amazing also to hear you connecting with what @compassion wrote - I'm sorry to hear last year has been so traumatic. Thank you for your reflection that things do get better.. .however slowly.. however painfully.. they do get better.
Sending you both my thoughts and compassion

Thank you for your words, fellow mama.
Your post is so very comforting, and please know that your thoughts and own experiences will keep me company.
I'm so glad that you can breathe a bit easier now. I've admired that relationships that you've fostered with your daughter; it is so clear that you embody love and support for her. I (and, I imagine, many others on this board) benefit from your words of wisdom.
I hope 2019 brings more comfort and happiness for you and your dear gal.

Hi @compassion Thank you for your sweet sentiments! I am confident we will all experience more joy and less sorrow in 2019.
I know you are still in the thick of things with court and uncertain about the next steps. Sometimes the waiting is the worst part- its so hard to formulate a plan when your not sure what's gonna happen next. I love your sense of humor! I'm sure it helps through some really stressful times. One thing I have learned over this past traumatic year is to not overlook the good times. I don't take the little happy moments for granted like I did in the past. I love what you said about just trying to smile and be happy with your family!
