She is coming (Really. Because FB knows)

What I missed, because I didn’t look at my Facebook last night and I somehow missed it on my newsfeed was C posting a status update about how she much she would miss her family.

She is coming.

She lost heart is all. She felt too lonely to come without her best friends, without her family. Nothing to do with me.

    Great news – I am glad.

      Thanks. She will be here in 5 days from now. Probably I will worry until then, because the rate of fatal car accidents is just way too high. She has one 2-day ride to her village, then a 3-hour drive here. I don’t know if she is too pleased with me. It’s possible she isn’t. Then the real rodeo starts. Yes, teenagers are very, very difficult.

        They sure are! And you get all sorts of extra added fun in this case between cultural and language differences, her family baggage, and your trauma reactions. But it sounds like you are managing to keep open possibilities for her that would otherwise be closing all too early for her. It seems to me that it is a gift for you to be able to experience having an impact in someone’s life and it’s a gift for her to have someone who is willing and able to lavish attention and energy on her. Hopefully at some level she is able to appreciate that, even if it also scares her.

        I hope so.
