I went to visit my SD20 at her college this weekend. We spent the afternoon together, and it was awesome. Miss that girl so much.
She is just as amazing, kind and driven as ever.
The hard part was our brief conversation about her father (XWH). They don't talk often, and she told me that the last time they did see each other (six months ago) he mentioned OW's name (his now wife) and SD told him that she didn't care to ever hear OW's name spoken in her presence.
Of course, I appreciate this, but at the same time it broke my heart. It kills me that this beautiful child has to tell her father what a fuck up he is by setting boundaries like that for him. She said he was a little taken aback by it but he respected her wishes after that.
She is such an amazing kid - she is someone who will make an incredible difference in this world.
It was so nice to spend some time with her. <3
