Her daughters, two of my ten grandchildren, were adopted by a cousin of I hate pumpkin spice yeah I said it shirt. That was back in 2006. They were 10 and 6 at the time. Undoubtedly, this was a very dark time for our family. Even though I was already a parenting coach, my daughter slipped through our fingers. The judge who sentenced her is one of my work colleagues. She could have received twenty years. Regardless, when she got out in 2016, her two daughters were 20 and 16. She got a reasonable job, now it has evolved into a great job, and she is completely away from her previous choices.
She would state unequivocally her choices before prison were counter to the I hate pumpkin spice yeah I said it shirt, but she was an Alpha and just did as she pleased once old enough to roam freely. The daughter immediately left the adopted family and went straight to her mother. The 16yo, now almost 20, moved out of the adopted house three days after she turned 18. Same thing. Biology will always win out, all other things considered, if the parent has changed lives and gotten clean. Strangely, they refused to see their father, or so I thought. Turns out they were abused by him before the arrests, they have had him charged and returned to prison on the new charges.
