Well, she called to say that she made it safely both ways! I suppose it takes a long time for the nervousness to abate somewhat. I do have a cell phone that I make her keep charged and use to call me when she gets somewhere. You know, cell phones bug me, but in these situations, I’m all for them!
Keri6789, that was a very good suggestion you made! I really hadn’t thought about it that much, but having her call to make sure that a policeman is actually legit is a good idea. You hate to think about it, but there are a lot of predators out there just waiting to take advantage of women.
I’m definitely going to ask for help from the Guardian Angels. I don’t know my daughter’s angel, or how to pray to it, but I ask mine to also look after her and request that He asks my daughter’s angel to be vigilant.
For those of you with quite a few kids, like someone else said, I don’t see how you do it! May God give you the special graces that your lives require! I admire your fortitude!
