I have a 24 year old daughter who is driving me crazy with a 27 year old son as well. My son is in jail my daughter is homeless with a 5 month old baby. I am going to write about my daughter. She has always been a struggle her father killed himself when she was 5 years old. I could not tell her how so I just told her that he had an accident. As she became a teen 13 her cousin over an argument told her how after that it had been hell. She is a young women had a child at the age of 18 years old he is now 5 years old. He lives with me in my home always has since birth she took him for an overnight stay here and there but not much because it was always at friends houses she lived with me as well. I help and took on the role of a mother again because she was always out getting high or drinking she would leave for days at a time. She singed a paper allowing me to take him to the doctor as well as his education. He was about 2 years old when she singed because I could not do anything without her. I lived in a prison with her in my home she has stolen for me money, gold, credit cards, checks, electronics, went so far as taken money out of her sons pig bank. I put a lock on my room door and always made sure that my door was locked. She started a relationship with a 21 year old who was messing around with his x and her as well. He is abusive, physically, mentally, and emotionally. She got pregnant and has now has 5 month old baby boy, They got an apartment together after 4 months my daughter called crying to come get her she was leaving him, Her family rent a truck and moves her again all her stuff is in my garage till now. We have seen her with black eyes, broken ribs, burses all over her body but she choices to stay. Now they are homeless and living place to place with a 5 month old baby. I had the baby for about 2 months called DCFS and they do not do their job. She refuses to come home because I have rules I will not race another child unless she gives me guardianship of both her children. I will not put up with her abuse any move. I have had it 8 years of hell with her and her problems; I have started the court process to gain guardianship of both my grand babies am I wrong for doing this to my daughter? I have tried to help her in many ways but the only times she calls her step dad is when she needs money or needs help with her car or just needs help. Her 5 year old is an honor student in a gifted school for over excelled children he is very smart. The father gave my guardianship but my daughter will not. Please give me some feedback.
