“We did good raising our kids and Tanya even officially adopted Karisten before we moved to California and was listed on her birth certificate since my sperm catcher wanted nothing to do with K, and then allegedly taught her to blow Zannies when they met and she branded my daughter with Gawd awful scratch tattoos”

Um..We did good? Blowing “Zannies” (urban dictionary says Zanax)and getting scratch tats is good parenting? I’m sorry, and certainly not saying anyone deserved this, but it sound like the environment was incredibly permissive.

I'm not saying it's great parenting but the zannies and tattoos came when she visited her no go birth mother.

Sometimes, especially if someone is of age to keep them from wanting to met a birth parent.

Back in the 80’s and into the 90’s doctors, more so shrinks were writing Rx’s for Xanax like it was Pez. It was nothing to get a bottle of those. Was not till around 2000 they quit because people were becoming so addicted to oxycontin et al.

As for the parenting, yes not every parent makes good choices and often it comes back to bite you in the ass. Even the most well meaning parents make bad decisions. Maybe this family needs to re-think their values for their past decisions have cost them too much.

You didn’t read the article well. The girls mother was horrible, didn’t want her, was on drugs, gave her daughter drugs, scratch tats, etc. the father and his wife were the good parents raising their 3 kids.

Of course a girl whose mother rejected her would have more personal stresses. Maybe up against more than the other kids without the step situation. But it sounds like dad and the new mom were really good parents.

Good parenting is not going to stop drug addiction.
