it took me a long time to figure out what community to post this question on. I guessed this would be the best because besides my faith my political believes are the strongest and i feel more in agreements with most conservatives than people from my own church.
so, my husband and i where not trying to have a child. yet im still almost five months pregnant and excited to be a mom. im unemployed and my husband only makes about 20000 a year so needless to say we are not self sufficient. i was not medicaly cleared to work because of complications in the pregnancy that have been resolved. we where invited to live with my mother when our living situation became unsuitable for a pregnant woman or especially a child. I didnt realize that my sister living there with her four year old would become the biggest threat to my unborn child. she has unresolved issues and is believed to have not aborted her child in hopes of preferential treatment or for the government support... im not sure why, but she talks about how she should have had an abortion or that she should kill herself (in front of the child who she forces to follow her every move). she now is threatening my child and making dooms day predictions and threatening to physically attack me with intent to hurt my child. i was cleared to work a month ago but havent found work yet. until then does anyone know what to do about drug users? entrapment laws esp in minnesota make it almost impossible to alert the authority (ive tried) and there is nothing that can be done to protect the child (i was told by a child protections ad visor, and many others in that field) we dont have anywhere else to live and until i get a job or two it will stay that way. does anyone know what to do? She smokes pot, but she has managed to become addicted to it and without it her little bit of personal restraint is completely gone. if she only lives off others and government aid i dont see how buying drugs is an economically wise choice, but thats not what im worried about. how can i protect myself and my child form this worthless pile of human waist? i dont think that all that negativity and undue stress are good for the baby. what can be done? im between a rock and a hard place and would like some advice of any kind. i also want everyone to know that i would not be in this situation if i had a different one to be in, and that i have applied to every job in driving distance and have applied at every level.
