I'm happy for you. I was convicted of 6 felonies while on my "run" and went to jail for 60 days. Actually I was pretty fortunate.
She CAN have a very happy, satisfied life after drugs. I do! Congrats for you and her. I wish her all my best. You too.

but couldn't admit it to anyone at the time. My best to you both.
