When I was young my parents had friends galore. They were always having cocktail parties and "do's". And as a young girl, I thought that was very exciting and glamorous. As I got older I realized that most of the people that came to the parties were from specific groups....office friends (my father sold insurance for a big company and my mother worked in a bank). relatives (my fathers family was close and he was the middle child of 18) and political friends (it was a family tradition to be involved in local politics). But as far as having close friends....no, they just didn't.
When I became and adult, SM and I have had friends that have come into our lives and then moved away or we just didn't have things in common with them any longer. Never because of trauma or drama but just life moving on.
But I have never had friends like I have since blogging. Not the imaginary ones my chiropractor jokes with me about. He says that cyber friends are like having imaginary friends when you are a kid. He's wrong. Even when I worked in the church environment as an educator or when I was a teacher, I never had people act upon friendship in the ways that all of you have. Reaching out and touching my family with love, respect, concern and warmth.
So in answer to your questions (as much as I can go into detail with the stalkers) GK is thriving. She came through what was a very difficult situation and is okay. I know someday she will be braver, stronger, more resilient and capable of handling herself than she would have been if she hadn't gone through this event. And I also know, as I have stated before and can never say it enough, she is blessed because of you and your love. So know that because of who you are, she is going to be a woman of strength and "walk in beauty" as the Navajo people say.
Blessings on all of you
