Some of you may remember that difficult child's father died a year and half ago of throat cancer when she was 13. He had a sister in California. I contacted her about a week ago and she has decided that she wants to try helping me with difficult child. I knew it was a long shot, since we've really not had much contact with her, but I felt obligated to reach out for difficult child and for my health. She's doing well and her husband was in the military and now works locally, her aunt works part-time. They have four adult daughters, 19-22 and one young grandaughter. There will be activity at the house and fun things to do. This will help with her seasonal affect disorder also. She leaves on the 1st or the third not sure which yet. Her sister will not get to see her before she leaves, she will not be returning from the camp that she is working at until the 10th. I pray that difficult child takes this opportunity to go to sunny California and have a new life in a positive way. I would love to be going to the ocean. Maybe I can visit sometime. We'll skype and such, but I am still going to miss her very much. My easy child thinsk she will be going to North Carolina for grad school next year. So we will all be apart. I hope that there is sometime we can all be together again in the same room.
