Last year her best friend turned her back on her because Taylor had to be cyber-schooled for several months and I guess she just didn't see any benefit in keeping her as a friend. The situation was unbelievable and without going into lots of detail lets just say Taylor has learned the hard way how cruel people can be including adults. And me, well I have never felt such animosity and hate towards any three people,( the friend and the parents). The mom instinct was in full swing!!!
Luckily her school is very understanding with her situation and works with her and us to keep her up to date on what shes missed if she is out.
I continue to remind Taylor that she is not alone. There are so many kids who have it very rough and that she is blessed we live in this country where we can get good medical care. I also remind her that all that she goes through will make her a more empathic, understanding and compassionate person which the world needs more of.
