Her h has been having medical problems over the last year and a half...last Feb he would have died if I would not have convinced her that he needed to go to the ER (he has a congenital condition that was presenting in an "uncommon to his disease process" way). He recently had another "attack" and was in the hospital, but they were able to get him back to health and changed meds...he's healthier now than what he's been in years. However, in the midst of all of this, her 13 yo DSD has begun to act out. She is being risky with a boy who got caught receiving head from another girl, while at school Their 13 yo is sneaking out, running away, receiving and sending inappropriate pix, etc. She says that she wants to go live with her bio mom (who will let her do whatever she wants with whomever she wants). The girl lived with bio mom until she was 6, and the courts took her out of the mom's care and placed her with her dad and my friend (the step-mom). Do3K and I sat and talked with her for a few hours, trying to help. If you could, please be praying for her and the entire family, as they determine what their next steps will be.
My problems seemed so big until I talked to her. A little perspective went quiet a ways tonight.
Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
At 13 she is just a baby!!! My DGD is almost 13 and my heart broke when I read this. They just don't know, do they??
Its such a tough time. I have no idea how any of live through the 13 -15 years.
