my husband's children moved in with us
My husband has 4 kids from 2 different marriages, and 3 of his kids moved in with us. I feel overwhelmed and depressed and not sure how to handle this situation.
Their mum decided that she doesn't want them anymore - long story - and she called the father to come to take them cause she is moving away to get married. The kids are 3 girls between 7 and 12 years old. We don't have a good relationship and they basically make a team against me, and the father always takes their side no matter what happens, like we can't co-parent cause we see things so different. I have another child as well. The kids grow up in a home without a system, sometimes they go to school sometimes no, they could always do whatever they wanted, my son grew up with a system, and all organized.
Has anyone been through something like this? This came all of a sudden, and I don't know how to start. I already struggle with depression and anxiety from before and now I just feel overwhelmed and don't know how to cope with this. My husband is shocked as well that she left her kids in this way. There is obviously no other place for the kids to go and I have to learn to live with this. What do I do? Any advice really, please
