A happy update from TIL

She and the children are where they need to be now and she is very grateful for all the support and encouragement she has received. I hope very much that she will return here but for now she’s intending to lie a little bit low.

Please just be sensitive to the fact that this is a huge, life changing decision for her and I think she would like it toned down a bit wrt pompoms and congratulations. I hope very much that this will change as the days pass and she becomes accustomed to the incredulous joy of freedom. She is already sounding positive about life where she is right now.

This time they really are ‘safe’ in the way that everybody hoped previously.

NB I have not used any names in this for a reason. Please be aware of security as she is understandably very worried about him locating her

She has had to overcome so many and such deep-seated mental hurdles that this really is an amazing achievement. I wish her and her children the anxiety-free life that they deserve.

Thanks, Tis, for passing on the message and many thanks to the originator for taking time to send it when there must be so much going on. Another wishing you strength and luck.

I will leave this thread on my watch list in the hope that, at some time in the future, there may be a further update.

Long time lurker too.
I too am feeling emotional and tears in my eyes.
So relieved for her and please wish her all the best.
I hope all her dreams and wishes can now come true.

Not entirely sure who you're talking about but if they've got out of a horrible situation and are making a fresh start, all best wishes to them.

Oh thank goodness, wonderful news grin

I am so pleased, I came just to check on her.

Thanks for updating.

Another long-term lurker (mostly), thanks for the update Leclerc.
Very pleased to hear the news.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Thu 18-Apr-13 16:21:33

I have no idea who this is about, but if a woman and children have escaped an abusive relationship then that is good news indeed.

FriedSprout Thu 18-Apr-13 16:24:12

<whispers> well done smile

Snazzynewyear Thu 18-Apr-13 16:25:50

I saw this thread and really hoped it was something like this, and it is. Such a relief. I will continue to think good thoughts for the person concerned and their DC. Onwards and upwards. And thanks to you TIL for passing this on.

lurkingfromhome Thu 18-Apr-13 16:29:25

Another lurker here. This was too big an issue for me to post any wise words about but I have followed previous threads hoping for a successful outcome.

I have a little tear in my eye and hope this is just the start of a much-deserved calm and happy future.

wordyBird Thu 18-Apr-13 16:33:07

flowers <also whispering>...very good news, thank you Tis.

..and I hope you are OK yourself, Tis, thinking of you. brew

Great news

Jokat Thu 18-Apr-13 17:09:04

What a relief. I think I've got something in my eye...

Bertrude Thu 18-Apr-13 17:26:16

No Pom poms or congrats, but relief from a lurker.

Hope she and the children go from strength to strength from here on in, and I wish them all the luck in the world

TisILeclerc Thu 18-Apr-13 17:28:10

Thank you wordy I'll be fine. Must admit, this has given me a huge boost. I'm so proud of her smile

Happiestinwellybobs Thu 18-Apr-13 17:33:24

Another long time lurker on the threads - wishing her and the DCs the best of luck smile
