i don't know what to do...ot but need help ladies
he's already tried her mom, and she's agreed to take her. But mikayla hasn't seen her since she was 2 and she's 14 now. She refuses to go with her. We're the next choice. I told him I didn't know what we would be able to do. She would have to sleep on the couch or we would have to get a bigger place. He offered to send some money each month for groceries and expenses and such, but I don't know if we could swing it still. Because it would be a legal matter, he said there might be some state money involved for us, but I'll have to make a few phone calls and see how that works.
I just don't know. I won't have time to sit down and hash this out with dh until Friday because of work and such, but I'll give him the condensed version tomorrow afternoon so he has some time to think about it and come up with any questions or concerns. Please pray for us and her. I want to help, but not at the expense of my own family either. Of course, out here she's more likely to stay put of trouble. School would be out very soon, we live way out in the country, and we go to church every week. They all think we would be a great influence on her. I told my uncle she would have rules and limits and would be expected to help out with things. I want her and them to understand this wouldn't be a free ride.
she's a good kid at heart, I know she is. Its just such a big responsibility to take on another kid, a 14 yr old at that.
