7 months now with no step daughter visit
I have reached out. Let kids draw picture and write her letters twice. No response to me or them. Gifts letters and such in mail even. No reply. Husband and I text happy birthday and we loved her. She said thanks love you too to him no reply to me. I’m glad it’s less drama and no headlice but even my husband has said he doesn’t really have a bond with her like I do so he doesn’t have much to miss when I mention missing her. First couple months were a stress relief but now it just sucks. I hate the drama and the alienation and the lies she’s always hearing about me especially. My husband and I filed out lifestorys with genealogy information on ancestry for the kids. Printed and sending her copies soon. Idk if I should send a copy of mine to her or not? Her friend that wanted to come over even when SD wasn’t here. Well she came forward to me and my husband about some abuse she’s been dealing with and CPS has barely done anything but a safety plan. We allowed her to report to the police her allegations against her mom and step dad because the nature of the abuse accusations was very illegal and sick. I hate seeing kids live in crappy situations and not being able to help them. I do my best and it’s exhausting and heartbreaking.
