My daughter and I got into one of our usual arguments because she lied and spoke to people online and gave them our home phone number. Well, the last 6 months before she left I thought she was fine and our relationship was finally starting to mature. We went on vacation for a week and she said she wanted to stay home because she's been trying to lose weight to go into the military (so we thought). I also know when I was 19 I wanted time by myself plus we spoke twice a day on the phone and she told me she loved me and I said so as well. We get home and within 2 days some stranger is calling the house. The first time she just hung up on him...I said,"Who was that?" She said, "I don't know some stranger". The second time within minutes he called back again, I said "I'll answer it" and she yelled, "NO!" So she anwered it and stood there so I picked up the other line and this man kept repeating her name. I yelled and told him not to ever all call back again that this is our private line. Well, my daughter lost it and ran off with the clothes on her back. I figured she'd be back, but now she's living with strangers that are threatening us saying that we better hand over her social security and birth certificate or they will block our line. We still haven't heard anything from her personally. I try to forget it and to let her go, but she is my daughter and my family has always been my life and to just let her go like that is killing me!!!!!
