Update

ell, I’ve been away a while. A really bad storm swept through my area and my internet was down for almost a week. Plus, I just needed to take some time off. Finally got her in for some one-on-one counseling with a therapist. It was great. She drew a picture of her father as a little irate devil with horns and tail. She drew me as a larger figure with a flowing gown saying, “You don’t know how to treat a kid” to the devil. She drew herself in the middle with a confused and sad look on her face. At first she was shy, but once she got started, she couldn’t stop talking. My attention and time is being taxed right now, but I will be more diligent about spending time here. I need it! Hang in there. It will get better.
