Ok, that is good, because that was what i was going to suggest as soon as I read that about your 10mo.

Rejection, abandonment, etc. by her mother is devastating. My SIL is in her late 30s, and she will say that your heart never stops wishing you could have a good relationship, even long after your brain accepts and knows it will never happen. Doesn't generally matter how terrible the mother is/was. Or how much "better" her life is now. And she is taking this hurt out on you all. She needs to learn how to get that out without taking it out on you. Adults struggle with this so its no wonder a girl of her age is having trouble.

I hope both you and your husband re planning to go as well - because the counselor can certainly help you guys develop a better response plan to her behavior. She is too old for "spanking her butt" and that is one thing that I really think needs to be reserved for bioparents if at all. For many reasons not the least of which - the last thing YOUR kids need is for you to be explaining yourself to a CPS investigator.

Forgiveness is...letting go of the hope that the past can be changed.
