Got a call from the bail bondsman today letting me know that a warrant has been issued for my daughter for bond jumping and her assault charge that she missed court for this last Wednesday. I knew it was coming. The hubs says he will sleep better once she's in jail, he says at least she won't get pregnant and might have a chance at getting clean of she chooses. I tend to agree, I think she needs to go to jail not only to pay her consequences but to forcibly put a stop to her lifestyle at least for a while. The bondsman said if I can get an address for her they can send the local police to pick her up and they will send someone to get her snd take her to jail. I have 5 or 6 days to get her locked up or I will be required to pay the full bond. Now that this has come to fruition, I don't care about the money, I want her locked up for her own safety. Granted, jail may not be the thing that prompts her to change but then again it might be. This next week on the 15th is her court date for drug possession which I know she won't appear at so that will be yet another warrant. Husband says we should wait until she misses that court date and then see if we can find I out where she is. It stinks to have to try to lure your own daughter somewhere so the cops can arrest her but what choice has she left us? I'm still in good spirits today even after hearing from the bondsman. In actually feeling encouraged that maybe soon she will be somewhere that will be relatively safe and might be the thing she needs to get her going in the right direction. Who knows, the choice is hers after all but I can still hope. Any advice on how to handle locating and turning your Difficult Child in would be nice to hear about. I am sailing new seas with this one!
