How I admire your strength! I can’t imagine how difficult that must have been, listening to someone who doesn’t know your son judge him based on his actions as a teenager and social media posts.

The fact that you were able to meet her with calmness is beautiful and can serve as a lesson for all of us to meet opposition with grace, rather than anger.

This was a beautifully written, heart-wrenching piece. Thank you for sharing. I hope you and your daughter have a lovely time in Spain!
