Well, the Beast reached out to BabyVoice
Hi everyone - it's been awhile, so here is a little update.
Back when BV was accepted to college, she created a FB page. She hadn't had one before and needed it for the marching band so they could do some "get to know you" chats and such.
We moved her into her college dorm on Saturday BUT on Friday, DH told me that BV had gotten a message from the Beast on August 18. Ten days after she turned 18. The message was simple and said "I have been wondering how you are. I am not on FB except to find you because I don't have your cell number. ASS doesn't want anything to do with me and I can't find KarateKid, so here is my cell if you ever want to talk."
DH told her to reach out to ASS to hear what he had to say about this. She said she would and she also said "NOW she's wondering how I am?" LOL
So, she called ASS, who told her allllll about what happened when the Beast reached out to him and he confirmed that he didn't want anything to do with the Beast and that BV shouldn't either. That she is a lying manipulator and if BV was smart, she would stay far away.
BV went back to DH and showed him what she was going to send to her mother. She asked if it was okay to send. DH said that as an adult, she is free to send whatever message she wanted.
It was brutal - really brutal. All about how 9 years have gone by, nine birthdays and Christmases, a 5th grade graduation, a middle school graduation, turning 16, a high school graduation and even her 18th birthday - all come and gone with literally no comment from her. She ended it by saying that she talked to ASS and she agrees with his assessment of her and to please leave her alone.
DH said he was never more proud of her :-) Will it stick? Who the hell knows, but it is what it is for now.
