The only solace I can find right now is that my daughter is safe. I had to leave my daughter, Ana, with an exgirlfriend and her husband, for her own safety. Although I know I can never have her back at least I know that she'll grow up with good parents and brothers and sisters who love her.
I really don't know what to say on all this and to be honest I can't understand all circumstances. Has your daughter mother? Could you tell us why she is not taking care of her daughter instead your girl friend?
I don't know anything about family laws in US but leaving child to "third" person here is felt like the worst possible scenario and least option; simply because children need their parents around them
For how long has been like that?
There are a lot of writings and ways to help someone who has fallen in codependent
and abusive relationship. But I guess it is prerequisite to seek for help.
Please think on searching for some help and advices.
