Thank you for doing what was right for the kids!

I don’t blame you! In fact, you’ve tolerated it much longer than I would have. It sounds like you’ve tried everything under the sun to help her.

Well, we’re all relating to one another. People will offer examples of experiences they’ve had, and if others can relate, they’ll comment. It’s not to take away from you or your post....it’s just now...
