Fin, hello! How are you today?
I am asking for advice or another point of view of a certain thing. I have asked my friends and family and myself and got nowhere. But there might be
cultural differences between me and other shed members and some of them might offer something to me that i haven't thought of in my Finnish bubble.
Here is the deal:
I have a goddaughter. She is my sister's daughter. Already over twenty years old but in my eyes always a tiny toddler that needs guidance and
protection. She lives in another city, used to live with this young man that i have met a few times and the man seems great. But... my goddaughter has
not called my sister since early spring. There has not been an argument or anything. I have just thought that she is learning to get a grip of
independence, searching for herself or something that growing up brings to the table. She has not been calling my mom (my goddaughter's grandmother)
Today she called her mom, my sister, asking for money with a sketchy excuse. My mom asked me if i would call her, but i know my goddaughter that well,
that she would know i was asked to do it. We don't even have each other's numbers, we just meet (or met before, before she "disconnected" with us) in
some family gatherings. I am shaken to the core now because i know mental illness, i know substance abuse, and i know the combination of those two.
And i don't wish that to anyone and i mean anyone no matter what. The least i wish it to a girl who is close to me. It is a long and rocky road filled
with flames from the mouths of the darkest demons.
Bottom line is i feel that my hands are tied here and i can only hope and pray, but that does not seem enough. WTH should i do?
