Re: Step Daughter
Wow, I admire you for taking this on. What a huge heart you have. Pretty difficult taking on a 14 year old who has so much "stuff" ..who knows what shes been through(?)
Has she had any counseling?
What if you were able to spend alone time with her every week. Even just an errand: trip to the grocery store, post office. Just a bit of alone time can work wonders.
I say you because your the mom, you are the one who is self reliant (congrats by the way on raising your kids to be able to take care of themselves). It sounds to be like she REALLY needs some individual attention because she is waiting for the other shoe to drop. Like what if these 2 people change their minds. Let her know she is there for good. You are not going to let her go anywhere. You fought for her and your gonna keep her.
14 its a rough age no matter what the circumstance.
