I removed my post because of all the bad insults and leave all that judge so harsh with this quote.

“I pray for a more friendly, more caring, and more understanding human family on this planet. To all who dislike suffering, who cherish lasting happiness, this is my heartfelt appeal."

Love can be very hard, mean, etc.

Someday, your little girl with a crushed heart is going to look back

Thank you I would love to stay but moving on. I hate to see this kind of thing on forums.
I do love her and would move heaven and earth to make sure she grows up well and happy.

Hugs, Gia. I'm firmly convinced we are all doing the best we can to raise our kids to be happy, self-sufficient members of society. I also don't think there is one right way to raise teens. Heck - I have 2 boys and they are very different. What worked for one didn't work for the other. If you've found any of the feedback useful - that's great. Take that and leave the rest. The trouble with online forums is that it's hard to read body language, really explain everything, etc. You sound like a great mom and of course you're upset that your dd is experiencing her first heart break. Don't let those that you disagree with discourage you from coming here. This used to be an active, supportive community. They've made changes to the format, which brought things to a screeching halt. And then made changes again. But this board is near and dear to my heart and I hope to see it thrive again one day.

Of course you are hurt and angry. I apologize if I implied you should not be upset. I too have been hurt when my boys were hurt.

I did feel, however, that trying to 'fix it' was crossing a line.

Thank you bunnierose for being so kind.

I forgot to add the Women and Man he lives with are not his foster parents just some people he has know for years. Your quite right anyone can come off as nice. But then turn very nasty when caught in a web of lies. I

But any parent that truly loves their child gets hurt when they see their child in that kind of pain.

When you said that this boy had grown up in the foster care system it raised a few red flags for me.

It doesn't matter what happened. The relationship is over and you and your daughter need to move on.

Perhaps the family did not approve of you and your daughter. It appears English is not your first language and that is enough for some people to end a relationship. I don't agree; I think those people are idiots but the world is filled with idiots.
