She's my half sister. She's only 13 I found out her mom (my step mom) was abusing her an our da would do nothing. She has physical issues (since birth) and her mother take it out on her because she couldn't make a perfect kid.
I've been over the paper work done all the reports and everything that's just too much to talk about but I finally have custody of her. I can't even describe how happy she was in the car on the way home.
I'm 22 with a two year old son it was defiantly hard but I proved no one else could take her and I could provide and keep her safe and I finally have her.
I won't care what people think when were walking down the street because now I know she's safe. We're making cookies to decorate an having a mini party with soda and pizza. It's a dream come true. It won't be easy raising a teen girl I have limited experience with girls (I have a boy) but we can make this work. Today can't get any better.

I know people in similar sitiuations, she told me that her sister had more respect for her because she tries to be a sister, not a mum. You can still protect ans guide her, draw on your own memories of being a teen but she's less likely to pull away from you if she sees you as her older sibling still. Good luck

Yea. If she were two or three I might have tried the parent role but at this point we both know that won't work. I'm her big sis giving her a safe place to call home until she's ready to do bigger things and be on her own.


Quoting EntrepeneurMom:
