My 5 year old step daughter was abandoned for the second time by her bio Mom just after Thanksgiving last year. She calls her everyday, but the 5 year old is tired of the phone calls and wants to see her. This last week she cries for her Mom, screams as if in pain (head or stomach ache) for attention or just clings to me. Mom told her that she had to leave to make money for bills, when in reality she owes her drug dealer 3k and I am in law enf, so she fled the scene. Other than counseling,(in the works) what else should I do. The more I coddle her the worse it seems.
