My daughter's been on a bender. It's been a couple months now where things have been sketchy. Last weekend she was supposed to come for our weekly family dinner and called ahead to tell me she needed to talk to me. I assumed she was pregnant. I didn't want the drama, but she refused to talk over the phone. She got here, stepped outside and told me she wanted to take the baby tonight. To top it off, she just happened to have her (abusive boyfriend/alleged dad) out in the car waiting. She wanted to take the baby to his house for the night. She's never had him overnight, never. He's been here since birth, every single day. She has refused the ex-boyfriend any private/unsupervised visits up until now because he's been emotionally/physically/sexually abusive to her in the past. I said no, no and nope. So she called the police on us. They came. They refused to take the baby from where he was, and said she would need to work this out with the court. She said that the EX wanted her to go down and change the baby's name, put him on the birth certificate, but she didn't (not sure if she's lying or not, but time will tell). This entire week she's been distant, elusive, answering texts when she wants to, hasn't seen the baby, basically could care less about her family and claims she just wants to see her son. She doesn't have any interest in anyone who could possibly tell her how incredibly damaging some of the choices she's making right now are. She's spiraling HARD. She really has been for years, but it goes up and down in severity. The baby is almost one and she's not employed (or just got another job), homeless (couch surfing), now back messing around with the person she's been trying so hard to get away from! She said he is selling pills and weed. Probably supplying her with that. I'm trying not to live on pins and needles, but it's almost impossible. There's not really a solution right now, just keep doing what we are doing and wait for one of them to file something through court, I guess (according to every "professional" I've talked to). Just needed to vent a little.
