“The ways she got these things are not because she worked really hard at her job if you get what I mean.”
Although her mom seems to be doing well for herself and can afford some expensive things, she never offers to give her money to help support her siblings.
Her mom is not paying any child support, but if she asks her for money she will send her a little bit. She never wanted to escalate things and alert CPS, because she was scared of losing her siblings.
Recently, her boyfriend proposed to her, and they’re trying to figure out where to live. He owns his own home, which would be too small for her and her siblings to all live in.
Adding to their problems, her brother is adamant about not switching schools, and unfortunately, he would have to since her fiancé’s house is an hour away from where they currently live.
“My fiancé has offered reasonable accommodations,” she continued. “We could make it work and still have them attend their school, but in all honesty, I don’t care.”
“I don’t want to be their mom anymore. I want my mom to take them and figure out new living arrangements. I spent nearly a decade caring for them. I don’t want to do it anymore.”
She nearly went crazy doing everything she did to take care of her siblings, and she became understandably stressed out about it all.
“I want to go play house with my soon-to-be husband and maybe have some tiny humans of my own,” she explained.
She confided in her maternal grandma that she doesn’t want to be the one taking care of her siblings anymore, and her grandma became furious with her.
Her grandma says she’s exactly like her mom for trying to abandon her siblings, and her grandma is very concerned that her mom will end up back where she was while her siblings will be homeless all over again.
