as some of you know, I've been babysitting my brother's three children for one year. I'm seeing many changes within the kids growth, some normal and some abnormal. I am very worried about the middle child, Connor. I'm suspecting he has had some kind of child sexual abuse during the time his mother was still home under the influence of heavy drugs. Their mother is in a rehab but the children get to see her every other weekend. in order not to make this a long story, which it is, I want to ask for prayers for Allie, Connor and Matthew. My brother is aware that the children need therapy....and don't forget me, I'm under so much stress that my friends don't know how I am coping with it all. Not in a million years would any of us have thought that we'd be dealing with this kind of situation. not only do drugs kill but they destroy the entire family.
with the other family members who help take care of the kids we all are trying our best to teach the kids manners and to respect the adults. clearly, our job is difficult. My brother has never taken drugs and it's hard to get him to take an aspirin for a headache. For him to be married to to a drug addict is bizarre. My ex husband was also a drug addict so I know his pain.
thank you for all your prayers in advance.
