The 42-year-old ex-nurse posted an adorable photo in which the 13 members of the Van der Auwera family are gathered around Colleen. The caption of the photo read: “Another year for my Colleen. A year of adolescence, a year of questioning, a year of lack of confidence, a year of hesitation, a year of perseverance…. But above all a year to get up, a year to help you, a year to guide you, a year to love you .. All that for eternity. Happy Birthday darling“. This tender statement suggested that the young girl had gone through great trials, from the height of her 15 years. And if the mother of the clan has a habit of sharing her days with her 190,000 subscribers on Instagram, she had remained until to then be very discreet about the concerns encountered by Colleen, before revealing them this Wednesday, June 22.

A gradual return to social networks?

By sharing a video of her daughter’s birthday, on the theme of the cinema, the mother of the family explained the reasons for this choice “which was very important“: “this year has been complicated, victim of mockery and above all of insults and betrayal on the networks, she has moved away from all this to rebuild herself. This choice also allowed him to continue to have confidence in her. She’s back stronger than before“, reveals Cindy Van der Auwera. Having therefore suffered harassment, Colleen had notably withdrawn from Instagram – where she is followed by nearly 10,000 people – for the past three months.
