Thanks - just talked to the BF - he feels happy that finally someone else in a position of authority over his perp. Happy that others now see that what happened was wrong and is worth investigating - giving some legitimacy to his pain after 17 years, finally taking the blame off of himself and onto the perp. WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!I just got off the phone with him and he kind of gave a "yeahhoo awhooo!" kind of sound.
But he also said that there are all kinds of other mixed emtions going on - kind of like me - we want to dance on air, cry, and barf all at the same time. Weird.
Good thing that we have 6 months to ramp up to and prepare for the hearing, get some time with a T, etc. if it was in say.. a month, that would be scary.
