I was raised in foster homes growing up. I am trying to help someone who has no friends or family that care to help her; my mother. She walked out of my life when I was 12. I never heard from her again until I was 32. I was in 3 foster homes and a children's orphanage until I was 20. The sad thing is she left KNOWING my father was molesting me! He never raped me, but was planning to, when I ran away the last time at 17. He told me who would they believe I was having sex with; him or my boyfriend?! I was trapped, and knew I had to leave. (Incidently, I never had sex until I was married at age 20.) She's never has been a grandmother to my 27 year old son. He never goes to see her, he has no feelings for her. She is self-centered, selfish, spiteful, hateful, and loves no one. I am only her daughter a long as I do for her. As long as she can manipulate me to do things for her. I have reached the end of my rope. My nerves are getting bad, I can't sleep, I am not eating well. As a Christian, I felt like I needed to help her. She did bring me in to this world, such as it was. I thought it would get easier since she got in the home, but it has gotten worse. She went willingly to the home.
