A fair choice Bill But I think that you should leave to door open to them. There are some conditions to this love if they chose to come back though.

Do not lend her any money at all. If you give her an inch she will take a mile.

If she wishes to have a place to sleep, charge her. She has lost the free rides token.

You should not trust her. You should still love her but do not take anything she says without suspicion. I have heard of a few family's close to ma that have lended a car to a child like yours and never saw it again. I would not like to see that happen to you.

Leave the door open but do not put you guard down.

Bill, Very sorry that you have gone thru so much. Not what we had in mind when we had children, I say. Reminds me of a Cormac McCarthy quote from "All The Pretty Horses", something like:

"it is good that God keeps the truths of life from the young as they are starting out, or else they'd have no heart to start at all."

Some good thoughts from Juliegel...

I feel your pain and know how hard a decision this was. I have had to do the same with my son. It is hard here at the holidays but it has to be done.

As one policeman told me "Trust is a very hard thing to rebuild". I, too, believed in my son and did my best but other persons and things influenced him more. Maybe someday he will grow up and wise up, but until then it is best for me and my family to keep him at distance.

I hope things straighten out in time for you also.

Thanks guys. It is hard around the holidays. It's the first time in thirty years she hasn't been around. I have to keep reminding myself that although I still love her, she's not very likable. I just hope she and her sister don't reproduce.

Ah well, the bright side of all this is that I'm sure to see them shortly on the Jerry Springer show.
