    This is beautiful-- "Have said she is like any normal person." It's amazing what people can discover about one another when we just chill out and get to know the others for who they are.

    So very happy for your daughter, you, and the friends.

    Yes, that's such a gift, that she has good friends who are flexible about how people can be, and don't judge. She has plenty to offer them, too, so it's a win win. It's good to have supportive friends.

    This is so important for her self-esteem. Glad you get the importance of this. A lot of us weren't so lucky and made poor choices as a result.
