And then she crossed the line!

So- I had to put some tough love into action!
This was the worst day and the best day- really!
She made choices that were effecting our home and her siblings- she decided that she knew what was best for herself- so I kicked her out! I was not proud of that- BUT I knew it had to happen. She could choose to go live with the very people that were providing her with the "fun" life that she felt she wanted- OR she could choose to straighten up and be part of this home! Totally her choice! It took her a few days- but before she was welcome back into our home, she had made some decisions that will effect the rest of her life!
I know it has not been easy. She had to give up all of her friends, buckle down in school and get a job! I am proud to say that she has done this and more and that I am so proud of her! It was a long tough road! I have learned so much from her and I am thrilled to have her as my daughter!
I have a feeling about the 19th birthday! I think it will be the birthday that she will remember forever! Happy Birthday Kelcey! We love you!

I'm so proud of her! That is a scary thing to let go as a parent and let them exercise their free agency. I'm glad she is happy and that everything is working out for her. I would love to help with any wedding plans that may be coming up! What an exciting time! Love ya Kelcey! :)
