She wanted to get rid of me when my sister came along too....

    Don't be I think I'm a better person because of it. My step-dad made sure of it. He looked after me even after my mum left him.

    Funnily enough I could be such a different person now if it weren't for my step-dad. I'm so glad he looked after me. He didn't have to but he chose to and I'll be forever grateful to him for everything he's done. Thankfully you can't just abandon kids so I'm all good

    The weirdest part is I look at all everyone who is blessed enough to have a mum who loves them for who they are and I think that those mums are goddesses. My mum is normal to me, even if she is unethical and well, a moron, she's still my mum. I'm not sure if that makes sense and I'm sure I've just given way too much information than anyone needed sorry everyone and sorry OP

    Pepsi, it's a hard situation and I can guarantee that this will affect your working relationship with this woman (if there is one) but if you do need to maintain that working relationship try to keep it as seperate from the way you feel about her personal ethics. I hope that makes sense.

    Angela, you have grown up to be a beautiful person, obviously your step-dad was a very good man. I am glad you still call your mum - mum!

    Anyone can be a mother or father but how many of them know how to be a mum or dad. Angela your step-dad sound like a great dad, and when I read your posts I see he has done a beautiful job.

    Just because she wasn't an ideal role model doesn't make her any less my mum. I may not agree with most of what she does but she has her own life to live and it is not my place to tell her how to live it. I am starting to get through that dogs are forever though, slowly...

    I am glad that you are educating your mum about "dogs are forever".

    to be honest, the puppy stage is the one i least like, that is probably why i tend to get my dogs from rescue, I hate going through the chewing stage and the house training etc. The thought of always having a puppy make me feel sad for her!! Just my opinion!

    I don't understand it- we had Ziggy for about a week when I had fallen in love with her? Don't they love their pets? Don't they have any empathy?
