Janice had tried countless times to understand what it was that was going on in her teenage daughter’s mind. She had tried talking to her with no results. The girl preferred talking to her friends on social media. And sometimes insisted on going to hang out with them.
Just like any mother would be, she worried that her daughter was in wrong company. That she would get into drugs and all things bad. But as it was, there seemed to be little she could do about it but pray. And pray she did.
She prayed that her girl would realize the love that her family had for her. That she would stop fighting them and at least listen to what they had to say. It was difficult that she choose her friends over her family. That she could not stand to be in the presence of those who loved her most.
Her prayers eventually begun to get answered many years later. Even with so much water under the bridge the family was willing to give their daughter another chance. Now that she had called to say that she was coming back home.
Notwithstanding, she could be coming back with baggage. Both emotional and physical. It might be that she had undergone trauma out there that could mean more input from the family. God forbid there might have been some physical abuse. All the family could do is wait for her to come back home. With baited breath not knowing what state their daughter would be coming back in. And how it would impact all of them.
