You have been raising this child for 4 years and now you just want to give her away? Poor girl. :(
Please seek help for both of you. Serious counseling, behavioral therapy, etc... whatever it takes. She is a little girl crying out for help and you are all she has in the world.
I don't know how things have changed in the mental health community in the past 15 years, but I am really surprised she's been diagnosed bipolar at only 4 years old. When my stepsister was suspected of having it the therapist said they rarely will make that diagnosis official under 18 years old.

I agree with the other ladies. She's only 4, you have been looking after since she was 5 months. Get her the help she needs and give her the love she deserves.
She's already had her Mother just up and walk out on her. You had promised to love and look after her and now you want to palm her off as well. That poor little girl.
Jodi had a good point, if she was you bio child, would be getting rid of her?

Ok, can I just get this straight? You adopted this girl a year ago, but you have raised her since she was 5 months old. I'm sorry, but you raised this child, you don't just get to give her away. If she were your biological child, would you even consider this an option? You don't get to choose the child you get when you give birth to a biological child and you don't get to give them back - you got to CHOOSE this child, but you shouldn't get to just change your mind. You can't tell me that she just suddenly became this way after you adopted her.
