I am a mother of five. Two girls ,three boys. I had my first child at 16. I am now 33 years old ,married to a wonderful man.
This october 18 will mark the one year anniversary of my daughters running away from me. I was in the hospital when they first ran away. I have been fighting to try to get them home. Currently they are ages 17&15, and are both pregnant and keeping the babies.
Im lost ,im scared, im hurting every day,i cry all the time and feel as though my life is crumbling beneath me. I need to know im not alone. I have tried everything to get my daughterd back but to no avail. My 15 yr old daughter was caught several times and sentenced to 12 months in placement for young mothers. While in custody ,she ran from them as well and has a warrant for her arrest. I see her to this day posting pictures on facebook ,flaunting her pregnancy,while i have tons of adults allowing her to stay with them. I dont understand where i went wrong and where to get help.

I honestly wish I had some real advice. That seems like such a rough spot to be in. Will the girls talk to you? Is there a close family member/friend that will talk to them about what is going on? Obviously they need some help getting their lives in order.

I wish I had some advice for you, but although I was also a young mom, I can't begin to imagine what you're going through.

Are they currently still enrolled in school? I would start there, there are councilors and social workers there who can give you advice. I would also talk to a lawyer, many do a free initial consult and see what legal avenues you could take, whether it involve your daughters or your grandkids. Good Luck!!

Thank you ,all of you. I felt so alone,depression is definately taking over. I needed to let it out. Thank you for listening.
To your questions,no they wont talk to me :(. My heart is broken ,but i need to be strong for my sons. I wont give up on my girls,ever. The cops wont help me ,ive even emailed my local news ,but no replys. When it rains it pours ,during this i lost my fulltime job. I need my silver lining. When will the pain stop?

They have both stopped attending school . Ivs put both my daughters on what we call p.i.n.s ( poeple in need of supervision) ive done everything they told me to do. My one daughter was caught two times by me and put into a program ,while in their custody they allowed her to run away two seperate occasions and because she got away from them she ended up getting pregnant not long after that. I have no help here ,i live in rochester ny.
