Here's my vent... our ( and yes we use our in reference to all the kids, it has been agreed by all the parents that we are all parents and should have the respect and authority that comes with that), but for the sake if clarification, my 2yr SD and 6yr SS BM moved 8 hrs away, willingly and for no aparent reason. SS has severe sensory, emotional delays and behavioral issues, may or may not be one the spectrum. BM doesn't truly understand how much this has affected him. Nor how to make it better. We were all co parenting very effectively before the move two months ago. She rarely calls and will only see them maybe once a month.
BM has had issues with drugs and poor judgement in the past. But struggled a d has changed a lot..she really loves her kids, in her own way... maybe not how I would but that's OK.
Last night she called for the first time in two weeks. SS had a 5 hr meltdown that lasted until 1am. My heart hurts for him. And I am angry at her. How can she not see what this is doing to him! We do communicate, and she knows how me and DH feel about it. We just can't reach her one this though...
Sorry for the novel, just frustrated I guess.
