Hi I'm very concerned about my daughter whom is 7. We recently moved from our home to a small one bedroom as we found out dad was doing heroin again ! He is so far gone in his disease he hasn't been able to show up at monitored visits or calls , unfortunately his future does not look good ..death or prison . I'm not sure the effect on my daughter ? She knows he is very sick from his own choices , but I know she worries about him ! He was clean and a great father for the first years . I know there's counseling and alanon but any other moms with advice on how I can help her feel safe and loved and happy please help!
I'm horrified at this situation but realize I have done the right thing to protect myself and my little one . She knows it's drugs and cigarettes and bad choices . I tell her daddy loves her and make an effort to not talk badly. Problem is my daughter is smart and has seen me cry and move out and arguments ugggg any advice ?
