Today I had a great day with my oldest daughter. My son called while I was there. I have been encouraging him to reach out to his sisters. So, while I was talking to him , he said, " Let me talk to her. " Well, she would not talk with him. She also told me that their father cannot help financially because he is busy supporting his other kids (meaning my 2 daughters.) I felt so bad for my son*!!
I guess my girls have learned from their father that if someone can’t make it on their own–ditch them.
My son only deals with his dad if there is no one else. My oldest daughter will not forgive her brother for some things. My youngest girl has not spoken to me for over 3 years-one of the reasons being that I was " Trying to push her brother on her."
Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with sadness for C, and with the responsibilties I have with him.
The financial things I can’t afford for him that would make his life much easier, the poor quality of social services here. I have been fighting everyone for 20 years and can`t change a thing. The only changes I can see are the ones that my son has made himself in the last 2 years. I am VERY grateful and proud for that.
Thanks for listening.
