A lot has happened this week and I am still processing it all but it seems my 12 yr old sister will be moving in with her dad this summer. She has been with us for over 2 yrs and we have tried to make her feel like one of the kids but it seems this is what she wants. I feel she is too young to understand the choice but I cant put my other kids through the fight to keep her here.
Mom to Kristen (14) Hannah(12) and Brian (6 )

i don't know the back story but it seems to me if you have had her this long, living with dad might not be a good place to be. maybe we can all pray that by summer she changes her mind. it could be that the best option is to let her know that the door is always open if she goes and it does not work out, BUT if she returns to you, it will be a permanent choice to stay with you. then see what legal action you can take so that you will be prepared if and when you need to be.

what goes around, comes around.....

Is there danger going to dads? I hope not. If not, it may be good for her. A girl needs her dad. It could be good for both of them. And having you there for her is invaluable.

I agree with Farmerswife. It might be a good thing - as long as she knows that your door is always open if she changes her mind.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!
