Hi there @Gr189 ,
Thank you for posting and sharing what has been happening for you. It takes a lot of strength to reach out and share your story. I read that your daughter finds it hard to get along with her stepdad and they keep having arguments. It must be so hard to see this happening all the time.
I read that after your daughter calmed down, she asked to be adopted and if it didn't happen, she would make it happen. Were you able to speak to her and ask her a little more about how she was feeling and what was happening for her?
It sounds like she was quite upset even after calming down.
Do you have any supports around you who you can lean on when things get tough? e.g. family, friends?
I'll send you a check-in email shortly.

Thank you for sharing what has been going on for you. It sounds like you have also been going through a challenging time with your eldest daughter.
I am sorry to hear that your daughter has been saying those sad sentiments to you, it is understandable how upsetting and hard it must be for you to hear those things. It is clear how much you love and care for your daughter and she is very lucky to have you.
It sounds like you have been doing a really great job at making sure that she knows how much you love and care for her which is really great to hear. Have you found this to be helpful?
I also encourage you to create your own post if you are ever wanting to talk more about this, or share anything else that may be on your mind. We are all here to listen and support you as much as we can.
