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.
