The Boyfriend was arrested!.......

This forum has been pretty dead lately but I wanted to post the good news that Grace's no-good boyfriend was arrested for burglary of a local business... and the BEST
NEWS OF ALL....Grace is done with him!!!! After 3 years of him manipulating and taking advantage of her loving heart, stealing from her, us, and everyone who
was good to him, and all the lies....justice finally came through. We knew one day he would slip up and get caught, but it seemed like the nighmare would never end and my daughter would never be free of him. I have posted many times about the heartache of this situation and all the twists and turns, and finally I have my Gracie back.

She is once again the loving, beautiful girl we remember before her dreams and her self-esteem were stolen
and is starting a new chapter in her life. She is working hard, dating a guy her own age finally, going out with her
friends which she couldn't do since the ex-boyfriend was so controlling and dressing up and caring about her appearance again.

Things are tough here for me, taking care of my elderly mom with Alzheimer's and a broken hip 24/7. Some days I feel
so overwhelmed, but God is good and rewarding me with the gift of my Gracie back. Just to see her smile again, and feeling her hug me again, is a dream come true.

Yippee, Celeste. What goes around comes around. I knew that goofball would do something to trip up. I'm so happy for you, I know how you worried and agonized over this. I try to remember that God will never put on us what he and I can't handle together.

:-) for Gracie coming back

Celeste, that's wonderful news...your title gave me a great big smile this morning - it told the story all by itself.

Now lets hope he serves at least several months while Grace gets herself firmly, irrevocably planted in another direction ;)

You must be SO happy!!!

WOOOOHOOOO!! Prayers answered! Please take care and take time for YOURSELF in the caring of your mother. It can be exhausting. I'm so happy that Gracie has come back to you - it makes all other things bearable, doesn't it?

RE: The Boyfriend was arrested!.......

How happy I am for both of you! Glad your family is together again and your daughter is with the ones who love her. Hopefully, this man has learned his lesson and will reform his awful ways so he doesn't hurt anyone else. Amazingly, with all you have to cope with, you made it through and I hope and pray life gets better and better for you.

Oh my gosh!!! That is WONDERFUL news!!!!

I'm glad Gracie is home at last...I know you missed her horribly.
My own precious Jessica is driving slam across the country to Arizona Celeste...for graduate school. My heart is just slowing breaking but I am so darn proud of her! This is really a good thing, just sad for me because she will be so far away...LOL

But perhaps Gracie can help you with your cute little Mama! I swear, I so love the pictures you show us with her precious hats and beautiful smile!

I am very happy for you and your daughter. You deserve a lot of credit for your self-discipline throughout this episode. Many parents would have driven the child away by trying to control the situation. Your faith in Gracie has been rewarded.

RE: The Boyfriend was arrested!.......

All I can say is "YAY!!!!" That is the best news ever! Hang in there with your Mom, I remember the pictures you posted of her. She has the sweetest face! I hope she recovers from her fracture quickly and you get a break from caregiving. I am so happy that Grace is free from that creep.
Sincerely

This is Katerose, I feel the pain. I have to turn my daugher in for stealing from me for drugs, boyfriend influence, more important than her mommy and daddy. I am a mess. I love all of you so much. The mommy nightmere. So sorry for your pain

Katerose---I'm so sorry to hear this---Parenting can be very difficult at times---
Thinking of you.

This is great news although he is sitting in a cell somewhere saying this is all someone else's fault. Your patience has finally been rewarded, enjoy getting back to good times with your daughter.

Locally a man that had been out of jail for 11 days drifted his car on to the shoulder and killed a woman out for a walk. He then tried to leave the scene but a good samaratin saw what happened and followed him while telling 911 where he was going. He turned out to be over twice the legal limit for intoxication. The first words he said as the cuffs were put on were ( Why does this always happen to me ). Just the kind of thing you hear from controlling people who cannot face up to their own problems. Good for your daughter finally coming to her senses.

Oh, thank goodness. I'm so relieved for you - it sounded like a truly terrible situation for a lovely woman to be in.

RE: The Boyfriend was arrested!.......

That's great Celeste, I'm so happy for you. I knew it was only a matter of time too before this guy would steal or rob something or someplace. I'd hoped it would be sooner than later. I'm glad she's home and finding herself again.

I'm sorry about your Mom, that must be really tough to deal with and you get through a day at a time. Does her dr have her on this new med that supposed to help memory? Just curious. My thoughts are still with you.

That's wonderful news. Hopefully the guy will stay gone forever.

RE: The Boyfriend was arrested!.......

Congratulations to you and your daughter. I remember the sheer agony this fiend put your family through. Thank goodness Gracie finally came to her senses. The last time I read a post about your daughter she had run off to Florida with the disgusting piece of human garbage. I think it was then that I washed my hands of the whole sordid ordeal. Just too upsetting to read. Hopefully she will NEVER make the same mistake again.

Caring for ill family members is tough. Hang in there and never forget to treasure the small joys that come your way.

Thank you Patrick, and everyone for your thoughtful remarks.

To update, Grace is doing terrific, although yesterday she was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and has been sick lately.
(I had Lyme Disease many years ago when my 3 kids were small, as a single mom and it is TOUGH.) But her emotional health is wonderful and those nightmarish days are behind us now. The ex was indicted for burglary, a class B felony, but did not show up for his court date and has disappeared. A warrant is out for his arrest. He tried for a long time to contact Grace, no doubt because
he needed money....but she stayed strong and has had no
contact with him. She is in a healthy relationship now
and is enjoying life to the fullest. We are back to being
close again and I am treasuring the laughs we share...she is my Gracie again!

Mom's Alzheimer's is progressing and caring for her is becoming more demanding, but I do get 2 afternoons off a week (there is a senior daycare program that she attends and enjoys). My rose season is winding down, and I have
been so busy the summer flew by. Hope this finds all of you well...

I am so glad that Grace eventually had enough self-esteem to see the light. Both my oldest DDs went through a total of three abusive relationships before they saw the truth.


 o
RE: The Boyfriend was arrested!.......

I have not have a chance to post many responses lately, but I read the posts every day and I know I will catch up eventually.

I was so pleased Celeste to hear the inevitable re Gracie - and she is in a new relationship to boot. Hope she is going to find happiness and contentment. Thank God, the sod is out of her life. Best wishes to her and to you in having your close relationship back.

Sorry about your mum. I hope she is comfortable. It is so sad...and so hard on you and your family, but what can you do, you are doing all you can for your mum!

My heart goes out to you. Regretably, I never had that kind of closeness with my mum. She was not into it!!

My thoughts are with you.
hugs!
