I am not actually a mom I am an aunt to a eight-year-old girl a five-year-old boy and a two-year-old girl. My brother had the elder two with another woman and his wife and him had the youngest. His wife is abusive towards the two that aren't hers and my brother is lazy and does nothing about it. As a result my oldest niece is incredibly angry and gets in a lot of fights and in trouble at school. She is in therapy and special ed in school and her mother is attempting to look into getting custody however the situation is very difficult as you can imagine. I just want to know what I can write to her in letters, since I can't be there for her all the time in person, to inspire her to be strong for herself and her siblings, who she is very protective of. I want to inspire her to learn and to read and just be a really good student and to be very very happy and that's really hard because she is just so angry with her father for not taking care of her and just having to take care of her younger siblings at such a young age and I just want her to know that I am there even though I'm can't be there and that she is very important and loved.

My name is Jenn and I have one child a girl and her name is Rosalee. She is three and half weeks old. I grew up in Fort Wayne, IN and currently live there. I met him in Copperas Cove, TX, but he is no longer in the picture and that breaks my heart when I look at my daughter knowing that she is going to grow up without her Dad. I sit and hold my daughter or clean the house in my free time.

Hello,

 My name is Stacey  I'm 41, married to my high school sweetheart after being apart 20+ years.  We have 5 kids between us. 

Girl-23, Girl-21, Boy-19, Boy-18, and Boy-16   We now have our first grandbaby girl.  I spend lots of time reading and hanging out with my family. We spend lots of time together and love to hang out. 

What's on my mind???  I'm changing my career path and trying to figure out how to compensate for the money I'm losing so I'm starting 2 home businesses and have no clue really how to do it... Lol

Well congrats on your baby girl!
No worries if he doesn't step up to be a real father there always some one else. Just remember for the future.
My oldest son is no by my husband but he has taken care of him like his own. :-)

He chose drinking and drugs and to be with his best friend a woman and to go back to his ex over us and he beat me at six months pregnant and kicked in the stomach and said that he hoped i lose her. i didnt lose and thank god for that and he is now in jail waiting to get three years probation a fine to pay and classes to take for men who hurt women for what he did.

Yes I am thankful and now i have to work hard in finding a job and now i can come out of hiding and be able to pay my dad back for buying all things i needed for my daughter. Other than my dad there is no one to help if i need it and that's ok.
