This is the third Christmas we have gone without seeing or speaking with our difficult child, her choice. She decided three years ago (right after we provided her the huge wedding she demanded) that she had been abused as a child?? We have no idea how she came up with that, no one in our whole family knows how she came up with that. The honest fact is we spent almost every waking hour and every dollar trying to get her raised, through school and to provide her with every form of therapy known for ODD, depression and suicide attempts. I could go on and on here but I am sure most of you have been through this before yourself. What really upsets me is the fact that my wifes father passed away a few months ago and our difficult child never acknowledged it with a card, call or any type of communication. This behavior is from an educated, grown woman that has had every advantage in life due to the sacrifice of others. I don't want to bore you all with all of the details but I am praying every day for a little honesty and common decency from these difficult child's. The best wishes to you all for the New Year.
