Well it has been a couple of months since I have posted here as I have been occupied with the death of my mother. My daughter and her kids have been here now since the first of December living with us and we have aged 10 years. Her emotional ups and downs even after we got her on anti depressant's has not subsided. Even when her Aunt told her all she had to do was to stop stealing from us and go to school that she would pay for everything. Even give her a bonus for good grades. Well 2 weeks ago she once again she got ahold of a credit card and went off to stay with old boyfriend and bought themselves concert tickets. Needless to say her Aunt is done and has told her no way now. She is tearing us apart. Our only hope now is to involve the father of the children and hope he can help with the kids. No regret for any transgressions. No remorse and no gratitude for anything. Legal rights in this state leave us out of the picture unless both of the parents are deemed unfit. These are such great kids to be stuck with such a mess of a mother. I don't know how we move on or survive at this point. In one year I have lost my Father, my mother, my brother in law and best friend as well as my Father in Law. I just don't think we have it left in us to do any more.
