Giddy
yup.

That says it all.

Thanks to every single one of you. I really would've curled up in a corner without y'all, I think.

We just got home and I'm completely wiped.

More tomorrow...

Thank you really doesn't seem like enough.

I love you all.

:loveya: :hug: :loveya: :hug: :loveya: :hug: :loveya: :hug: :loveya: :hug::loveya

She's HOME!!!!

She declined, though. Go figure...

Thank you.

Like other DU'ers, have spent some of the nights, and days, worrying about her. Having gone through this with my son years ago, I do so know your relief.

Will be looking for your update!


Until then.... :hug: :loveya: :hi: :hug: :grouphug: :bounce:

I've been so worried about you and your daughter since the day you posted she was missing and I'm SO GLAD your baby is home safe and sound. I can't imagine the relief you must feel.

40. The only moment that comes even close to when I saw her walking towards me
yesterday was the the first time I ever laid eyes on her when she was born.

Just pure...joy.

Thank you, MsKandice...the love and support and caring that I received from all of you is truly what got me through.

I am, too. Seems she thought she'd be able to get home before she was missed...but the cab took too long getting here to pick her up and then the mall she went to was further than she thought it was and she knew she wasn't going to be able to sneak back in and she didn't want to get grounded.

Ummmmm....guess what? She might see daylight again by the time she's 40...

Thank you.

I did. Slept better than I have all week, even if I did keep getting up to peek in on her. And finally...when I went to her room this morning...finally, she was there. The room was a mess...but she was in it.

The rest? Doesn't matter.

24. We are all so happy for you, Lisa. You and your sweet girl have a
lot of love and communicating to catch up on.
I've been in your shoes and locking them in their
room doesn't work. Ya'll just have to be honest
with each other, butt heads and work it out together.

27. Oh GF...




I can't begin to tell you how worried I was and how happy and relieved I am, and yet anything I've experienced was but a teeny tiny fraction of what you've been through. Bless your heart for having to endure such a nightmare, and for holding up as well as you did. You are an amazing woman and I greatly admire your strength and courage.

:hug:


May I suggest saving all of these threads and having daughter dear read them so she can maybe, possibly, in some small way start to begin to grasp the sheer volume of panic and angst that her disappearing act caused to a great many people?


Anyway, get some rest, sweetie. Love to you...

If it helps, your experience is going to be helpful to so many of us... my fiancee and I made sure her 14-year-old daughter knew what was happening.

So congratulations, and thank you!

Thank you.

95. You're more than welcome. What a trial for you this must have been.
And could there have been a happier result (except, of course, for your daughter not having gone missing in the first place)?

You've lived every parent's nightmare. I do wish you had not had to have those sleepless nights.

83. I'm so happy for you both...
now y'all can move forward and get past this.... we should ALL get medals for raising teens, huh?

I'll change my website back now, but I'd do again in a heartbeat for anyone...

Heh...I was watching something a while ago and they were saying something about 'poor guy, three toddlers'. Heh...give me three toddlers any time. It's the TEENS that'll kill you.

Thank you.

99. toddlers...
tell me about it... my daughter is 14 going on 40 and my son is 13.. but he's so much easier, IMHO. He's like me and just kinda goes with flow of things. My daughter, on the other hand.... well, I just figure it's as hard for a girl to grow up without a mom as it is for a boy without a dad.

If it's any consolation, I've gotten two boys through their teens...well...one all the way through and another one is 17. I survived them, I survived this (albeit with a whole lot of help from y'all), and I'll survive the two that are waiting in the wings.

You will, too.

100. I was soooo close to jumping in my car the other night
And driving down to Castle Rock to look for her. Then I realized it would be a little out of bounds since we've never spoken or met.

I'm so happy you were able to get her back home.

103. I am so happy to hear she is home
safe and mom got to hug the stuffing out of her. If her siblings are anything like we were, they may make sure she not only knows what she put everyone through but that she never forgets it. :hug:s to the whole family and a very happy ending. Giddy is good and wishing all of you strength and happiness now and in the future.

104. Thank you.
Her brothers were great through it all...spent several nights trying to hunt her down and were there for me and their little brothers.

They'll let her forget it when she's about eighty, I figure.
