My great niece on husband's side just contacted me via fb. I haven't seen this child since she was maybe 6 yrs old. Full blown difficult child full tilt pretty much from the get go. Partly due to terrible parenting on newphew's ex's part, whom also is a full blown difficult child (and the reason he finally gave up on the marriage), part may due to genetics since her mom is also a difficult child. We've not seen husband's nephew in ages, years in fact. They don't have much money to travel. Now I have this 16 yr old telling me she's desperate to contact her dad, that she knows I'm family, and could I please give her his address and phone number. Sad part is, I couldn't do that if I wanted to because we don't have either. But I am friends with nephews current wife (been married about 13 yrs or so) on fb as well. I'm wondering, as I type this, why she just didn't look up her stepmom for the info? She was very polite about it. But I think I'm going to contact nephew's wife and let her know. Because I haven't got a clue what is going on with his child or anything about that relationship. He's a good man and one of the best Dad's I've ever known. His current wife is much like I am, a no nonsense type who would treat pretty much any child like her own. But I do know via mother in law and husband's bro's wife that there were some major issues on occasion with the ex. Not sure how to answer the child though. I was a bit shocked to find a mail buy her to begin with. I have a vague memory of Nichole saying something along the lines of the girl tried to friend her.........and Nichole said her name couldn't be caity (Nichole was thinking katie) because that was her sister's name and she knew this girl was NOT her sis. Until I explained that obviously great niece goes by a shortened version of her name. lol (the two girls got into a rather heated difficult child type arguement) Ahhh the people fb tend to draw out of the woodwork.
