DE Bora, She is 9 going on 90. She is very bright and is the only child and grandchild. She has been living with us on & off between 1& 2 1/2 when her mom left her dad. She has been with us ever since. The marriage was verbally abusive and took my dd a long time to get over. She still has self esteem issues. I have encouraged counseling but that is all I can do. My dgd was afraid of her own shadow when they first came but I have gotten her over that. She is confident , does well in school and socially right now.
It is funny I would have never thought my dd #1 was one who would have put up with the abuse but it starts so slowly it caught her up before she knew what hit her.
Sorry for rambling but felt it would help if you knew the background
A Great Attitude Becomes a Great Mood, Which becomes a Great Day , Which Becomes a Great Year, Which Becomes A Great LIFE
