We have had a very difficult 2 years .When our son was born we had no family support and both grand moms disappeared. They made us think they were so excited and would be here when the baby was born and not one person helped us when we came from the hospital and still no support 2 years later. We are new parents , difficult labor and very traumatic time. We had to hire a nanny because we did not know what to do. In the process of no family support we had 5 nanny's within a year that all stole from us and one doing drugs. One of them sued us for extra money and the other we sponsored from Brazil was headed in that direction and had to let go due to her starting insurance scams. While spending thousands of dollars are retired moms sit back and let everyone take advantage of us . They said we are the parents and are responsibility and that we made very bad decisions and did not ask the right questions. Later last year I lost my job to care for our son since we did not want anyone in our home and has been getting worse with family. They are completely selfish and say that they did it and what is the problem? We have rushed into paying for childcare to keep our sanity and jobs with no guidance. I apologize in advance for dumping our life story on everyone, but I am at my wits-end in figuring out where do I go from here? I'm not sure if I should spend any energy in having my son around these people at all, for I am afraid that he will pick up on the wrong values. Are bad grandparents better than no grandparents at all in this situation? Thank you in advance everyone.
