    Hi guys, right i have a few seconds to spare whilst she is in the bath,
    right i was in the hospital having a chat to the consultant and i get a phone call saying she had been causing trouble yet again and that my sil was throwing her out onto the streets, so i went up to her as soon as i'd finished and asked what she wanted and it was a relief to hear the words " i want to come with you ", we had intended to give her a few hours whilst dh went to the gym but no they were there chucing her stuff in the car, so after a tearfull goodbye we treated her to a mc donalds and brought her home to settle in. We have told her the rules n regs n so far so good she has settled in well and has took to her chores immediatel, she never shuts up talking and best of all she has opened up a little already not much and i am not pushing her but we went a walk shopping as she had no ladies things and it's time of the month so took her shopping for some things and treated her to things like fav cereal etc and she started to open up a little.
    What i find upsetting is a 14 year old who doesn't even know how to cook beans on toast or make a cuppa, well she met the kettle earlier and even watched me cooking so interested.
    She's in the bath now then off to bed to wind down so day 1 not to bad

    Day 2
    well guys not much to say today has been chilled and just felt so normal, she woke up giggling at my 2 year old shouting mommy n daddy i've poo'd, then has been talking to friends on msn, we nipped to her parents today to pick up the last of her stuff and wow that was wierd she just sunk into herself and didn't talk her mother was on about they are down sizing now she has gone and that they are moving away to wales :cry: i feel so sorry for her, we're off in a couple of weeks to get her some new clothes e.g as i don't get paid tilll then but she only has 1 pair of school trousers that are ripped and ruinned, 2 pairs of her mothers old jeans and a coat with a zip that doesn't work. So this little lady is going to be a bit pampered as we're having a girly night soon and will dye her hair then in a couple of weeks some new clothes ( i've told her as long as she behaves )
    So girls it's all good for now and she's even been doing chores and i'm learning her how to do spag bol tomorrow night. :hug:

    Hi people well yesterday was 1 big emotional day for us but in a good way parents txt me sayibg ring me it's urgent so i did thinking awww they want her bk, oh so wrong they want to go solicitors and sign her over to me properly, how s**t i mean come on talking of cutting all ties from her.
    So we broached the subject in an informal way, well infact in asda lol and she said do you really want to do that n we said of course so me and kee were crying happy tears in asda oh we must of looked a sight.
    We dyed her hair last night which was lovely as we had a laugh but it's nice as she calls my dh uncle and he never had that off her b4.
    So we are doing ok for now i know and expect rough times but i'm not going to rise to they like her parents i'll ride it out and then talk to her.She is looking forwads to xmas as we make a big thing of it not with pressies but with all the trimmings and food, also we're going in a few weeks when it's dark xmas shopping as we love it with all the carol singers in town.

    Aww, glad to hear things are working out well so far =) She doesn't so much sound like an aweful teenager as a poor girl that's just been chucked aside for being a 'burden' to her parents. Glad she's got an auntie like you =)

    How did she take to church yesterday?
