My husband and I have custody of our two grandgirls. We love these little girls like our own. My daughter was using drugs and got pregnant. We put her in treatment and now she is still pregnant and living with us. I want her to stay with us, but she does not. She really has no place to go. She is clean 6 months. Her baby is due Oct. 3. She is a very nice mom but extremely demanding and messed up in her head (we believe its from her use of heroin) which she is no longer using anything. I would like to learn to live with her while she is still here and gets back on her feet and is able to resume her normal life, which was quite productive. It is very difficult though because everything I do and say bothers her. She cries and says I am picking on her. Life is very difficult for me right now and the children 3 and 6 and are starting to notice though they have a very comfortable life. I do not wnt to through our daughter out of our life particulaly now that she is pregnant. The biggest problem is that she is very naive and gullable. Yes, naive and gullable. And she wants to go back with the childrens father who is a deadbeat. He gives her nothing. He does nothing for the children. And she is basically chasing him to see her. But she is not getting the picture. What do I do. I am a Christian. I get the family including her to church. But she tells me she is doing it for me. That she gets nothing out of church when she is there. I am at wits end.
