Sad News about An Old Friend

I'm not if I've posted about this before but... I had found out some sad news about an old friend of mine. I knew this girl about 2 years ago. We connected because we had kids and were single parents. Our sons were 2 months about. She also had a daughter who was 2 and half. The more we hung out, the more I realized this girl had serious issues. She was barely making ends meet, lived with her parents and was always stressed out.

I tried to help her. But I couldn't help not feel sorry. Both her kids had the same deadbeat dad, in fact, she had suspected he beat her daughter. They broke up and in that year, he had 2 kids with 2 other women. Then she went back to him and got pregnant with her son. It was a bad situation all around. Eventually I told her how I felt. That she is the reason she hates her life. She out herself into that mess. Well we stopped being friends after that.

Recently I found her mom on facebook. Her mom and stepdad ended up moving to Virginia...with her kids. Plus her third child. She had another kid. In all the pictures her mom posted of the kids,I didnt see my friend. Turns out no one knows where she is. She just disappeared. It was very upsetting to see that. My friend abandonded her kids. I shoukd of seen that. When I knew her, she was so miserable. I'm just so glad her mom took those kids in and is giving them a normal life,

Sorru this post was so long. Just had to get it out.

 Awww I am sorry to hear about your friend. I hope she comes too and realizes she is a mom and she needs to get back to her kids after she gets the help she needs.

She was trying to be a good mom. I think she just needed a lot of help dealing with things. Seeing the kids in those recent pictures felt good. They looked much happier.

Some people just arent ready for kids, especially three.  Hopefully she will resurface and try to be part of their life.
