Hi, my name is Debbie, and I am a married (18 years) 42 year old mother of 2. I have an 11 year old son, Joshua, who is agreat kid. Than I have a 17 year old, Stephanie, who thinks she all grown up. She recently dropped out of school, she only needs 8 credits to graduate. And as of yesterday has informed me that she doesn't want to be part of this family anymore. This is very hard for me to deal with. We are like any other family in America. I don't know who she is anymore and need some advice on how to handle this. I don't sleep and it is starting to effect every other aspect of my life. If anyone has some advise on how to handle this please let me know. I would really like to meet some new people and I guess in some way start my life. Since it has always been focused around my children. My husband (Matt) thinks that I'm taking this to seriously and that she'll come home. But she's just as pig headed as he is. Please help me before I have nothing left for my son.
