I have a 3rd daughter now -a happy post-

Okay I don't really have a 3rd daughter but I might as well. 

She's 13. Her mother is in jail and she lives with her aunt.  Almost every day she is over my house, helping my kids with their homework and being all in all very helpful. She made the decision to call me "ma" out of respect (even though I am only 8 years older than her) because I feed her, make sure she is taken care of, and look out for her.  Heck. She's going to be with my family on Thanksgiving. I've only known her for almost 2 months and she has already made herself part of our family.  When we plan to do things, she is in the plans. My guest room has somehow been converted into her bedroom. 

If you ever met her you would never guess the struggles she has been through.  You would never have guessed that almost 2 months ago -on the day we met- she was the victim of abuse, neglect and just having an asshole for a mother.  She is always happy and bouncy and nice to everyone, even when I know that she is sad on the inside.  Most importantly she is able to talk to my kids from a standpoint that I could never arrive to. They have all lived through some of the same things.  She tells them the truth and they consider her their "sister"

This girl is an angel. 


Do you have any "fake" children. Who aren't yours, but might as well be?

- Yes, I know that the anons are going to bash so let me just do that for you so you can go pipe down.

"So she went from having an asshole of a mom to a bitch of a "mom"."I feel sorry for that girl if she sees you as a role model""troll",*insert meme here*, "0.o" , bitch, cunt, twat, *insert offensive name for a female here*,  And any other random stupidity that the anons come up with. 

Bash away. I simply don't care

No bashing, I think it's great, the more positive influences in a child's life the better. It sounds like a win for her and you children

That's amazing. Have you thought about adopting her? Could it even be a possibility?

She's a lucky girl that someone not realted to her cares for her. Keep it up mamma! It's important. And if she's calling you "ma" it's the best compliment!

I am glad you are there for her and vice versa. It think it is great that you have created such a close bond.

Well she's with her aunt now as far as custody goes. I honestly don't know if those are options.  She's not in foster care or anything and I think since she is with family, they wouldn't let that happen.  For now she is just welcome to come over any time she wants. And she knows that we will take care of her. If she makes a decision that she wants to live here full time then I'll see about it.

Me too, actually. We all love her. Even my brother considers her his "niece" because she is always in the house. She's family. I think the fact that she is soo nice and so mannerable and helpful (which is so unlike other 13 year olds) that won us over.

I know they don't but when I write that on the bottom of the posts it keeps the posts positive because it makes them run out of bitchy comments.  

Thank you. I am glad we have her.
