Thank you for sharing this with us and for being so open and honest.
It sounds like it has been a very difficult journey for you and your family and it is understandable that you’re feeling this way. It sounds like you and your husband have both been very supportive for both your 16-year-old and her daughter – they are both very lucky to have you!
It is understandable that you’re feeling this way and that your husband is also anxious about leaving them both. I was wondering if you have been able to speak to your husband and express how you are feeling?
I know that you mentioned that you’re feeling like your life has been put on hold which is understandable, it sounds like there has been a lot of changes going on and that you have all had to adjust to. It is understandable that the first time taking a trip away without them must bring up a range of feelings, but I was wondering if you think that after this trip, these feelings and concerns might change, making it easier to organise and go on more trips together?
I also know that you mentioned that the ex-boyfriend was manipulative and abusive and was wondering if they are both safe from him and whether they still had any contact with him?
Whilst you are away, do you have a safety plan in place for them both and will she have access to support if needed?
Thank you again for sharing this with us.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
