I feel like I've completely failed her. My cousin could have died because I didn't pay attention. It just feels like a nightmare. We can't really do anything until Monday, so the plan is to keep her alive and safe and busy until then.
anyway, I guess that's all. I just needed to get it out. Dh wants to confront her tomorrow afternoon and tell her we know, but not that we're committing her. The deal was that we would be open and honest with her if she would be with us. Since she hasn't been, we feel no need to disclose everything. This was one of our worst fears when we took her, but I just thought she was doing ok. That she was happy here. I was wrong.
**Mikayla was really out of it this morning. She didn't say anything all morning and disappeared when we got to church. I finally found her hunched down in the corner of a dark room. I tried to talk to her but she wouldn't talk. So I offered to take her for a drive and get some breakfast and she agreed to that. So we went to Denny's and she talked on the way home. She came clean and agreed that she needs help. I'm going to make her a Dr appointment and she said she would talk to him and we would do what he suggested. I told her that may mean the hospital, but not necessarily. I told her she could trust me, I won't betray or hurt her. But I have to do what I have to do to keep her safe, even if it makes her angry.
