Diosito quiera que aparezca pronto. Porque el dolor que han de estar sintiendo sus familiares a de ser inimaginable. Will be praying for her

At Juan regardless of how good of a parent you are or we can be there is always going to be that one child or teenager that will run away and make bad choices no matter what we put in to them . I got three kids I drilled in them love chores responsibilities which school was one .....my two older ones were straight a students graduates never in trouble never ditched . My young one different story ran away her freshman yr I’m a leave it at that .
