My parents have been married for about 28 years. they just adopted three girls last year. my mom did not want to do this, she has health issues, but my Dad really wanted to adopt so she went along with it. well these girls are 17, 13, and 10. they do not talk to my Mom. My mom is home all day by herself, the girls come home from school and do not talk to her. unless my dad says something to them. then they will talk to her. she is very upset and will be leaving my dad, my dad called me this morning and said he is picking the girls over my Mom. It really bothers me, that he is trowing his marriage away for these girls, I love the girls, I really do. But I have to wonder what else is going on? Please what can I do to help?Answer Question

Why do you love these girls? They have only been around for a year. Your mother didn't want them. They are breaking up your parent's marriage. It takes prolonged contact to develop love. It would be natural to resent them and maybe even hate them for the way they treat your mom. It's ok to not love them.
Your mother is miserable. It doesn't sound like the girls are leaving. Let your mom leave and start a new life. Be supportive for her. Divorce can be a good thing.
