Truth be told, I love my SIL. We have a great relationship. I just don't think she ever really learned how to be a mother. I know she loves her girls more than anything. She will always stand up for her girls, but time after time she keeps putting them in bad situations. The fights between her and her boyfriend have gotten worse, and now her youngest daughter is staying with her other aunt. She refuses to accept that her drinking has become a problem, and I can only guess it's because she feels like it's all she has left. Her oldest brother died nearly a decade ago, and even today I can tell she still hurts from it. I just can't help but feel like I'm making things worse now that both of her girls are no longer living with her. But I know this is what's right, and I think that's why it makes things so much harder.
Just need to vent...
