Did I do the right thing or is what I did just another way of trying to control my granddaughter?
I am a 68 year old woman who has enabled my grand daughter far to long and far to much. My grand daughter is a 25 year old heroin addict with two children aged two and three. She went to treatment just before getting pregnant with her older son and stayed clean until about a year ago. since then she is back to injecting heroin and meth and using any drug she can get her hands on. I have bought many boxes of diapers, so much food, clothes, have paid her rent or her electricity bill or her cable bill and have kept the kids days at a time. All the while saying I'm doing it for the boys.I recently found out she is about three months pregnant and still using. It was the last straw. I called social services and told them what I knew. Since the new criteria came out second hand knowledge is to be considered as first hand knowledge. Now they want address and are going to start working on what's going on. I'm afraid she will lose her boys and her home and everything else she has.I don't know if I did the right thing. I told myself I did it for her boys her unborn child and her. She is going to be so angry and I know will keep boys away from me and I have a very close relationship with the boys. What did I do? Could I have done something differently?
