Oh happy day!!

“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning...” ~Joseph Priestley

This is going to be totally non fiber related, it's about a fresh start...The man has a 16 year old daughter. His ex and him have shared custody. She moved with his daughter about 7 years ago without telling him where. Financially he has continued to support his daughter but hasn't seen or heard from her. He could not afford the cost of detectives and lawyers and just hoped that one day she would call. Last night they spoke for the first time!!!!

From the sounds of it she has had a rough time and lies were told to her. She is not living with her mother but has a legal guardian. The guardian sounds fantastic and truely has her best interests at heart. Letters and emails have been back and forth for about a week but last night was the tops.

There will be a return to the usual fiber/animal stuff at another time....possibly Sunday if all goes as planned. Have a great weekend.
Everything is still in that nervous stage but he knows where she is and that she is safe so a huge weight has been lifted off of his shoulders. It sounds like she wants the relationship and I know he does so my fingers, elbows and knee's are crossed that all goes well.

So when the man is happy, I am happy as he really deserves this. If I knew how to dance and wouldn't look like a fat wobbly bowl of jello I would be dancing right now!
