I went to talk to Jeremy's mom to offer my help in whatever way I could. I told her I have been to a youth detention center and could personally tell him it was no fun. And explain about school because he is doing the same thing I did, not wanting to do the work because it's too easy. I also told her that I was asking her first because I didn't want to overstep my bounds. I also told her about the message my sister sent. We are both going to talk to Jeremy about that.
She informed me that it was not stepping on her toes. That she looks at this as he has 2 moms. She wants me to be his MOM too. Give him rules, tell him no, ground him if need be, and let her know what is going on. We just entered into co parenting! Something I would have never asked for, but she offered! She wants us to have visitation, and for them and us to work together to finish raising him! I can't believe it. I am beside myself with JOY!!!
Thank you all for letting me share my journey here. It is a tough one. But I'm so happy. And happy I have friends here to share it with!
