Thank you! Thank you all for your kind and uplifting words in your comments and private emails. Each and every one of them have meant so much to me. I seriously questioned whether I should bring this here, and I'm glad that I did. I found a lot of comfort and kindness.
I'm also sorry that so many of you have been hurt in similar ways. It's just heartbreaking.
To answer a couple of questions: Yes! She is going to counseling. The boy involved was expelled from school, and I'm waiting to hear for exactly how long. (they had to have a hearing) I was assured that the boys that watched were also being punished. The week went well for her at school. Surprisingly, no one except her friends said anything about it to her. She's doing ok. Her semester ends next week, and we have the summer to heal and enjoy life.
As for me, I'm trying to keep my anger at bay and just support my daughter. I've been catching up on orders, adding some new things to the shop and wandering around my studio. Work is comforting.
Thank you again, I'll get back to normal blogging posts soon.
I really love and appreciate you all. Cerri xo
