hi silentscream,

Finding "a spiritual connection within yourself" is where you can find the strength to accept that which you can not change, and where you will find some peace while struggling with the turmoil of your daughter's pain.

I can find this connection within myself by simply sitting in the mountains and engulfing the gift of beautiful nature. Finding your own inner connection will help you stand strong next to your daughter. You will remain strong even during times when she must lean on you.....

I can't provide any logistic debate about the practicality of inner connection. It comes from our core, our soul. It is personal, and it is what keeps us from being beaten down during the trials of life.

keep searching our friend,,,,,you are obviously an amazing dad.
