So I've heard recently that Pie's birthmother is spiraling out of control a bit. We've known as long as we've known her, that there are mental health issues. She has, however, attempted with medical help to keep them under control. Apparently not so much anymore.
I have known that there have been problems since Pie's birth, a dismissal of meds, self-medicating, etc. But she has never been anything but even-keeled with Pie. So I have felt like it wasn't my place to say anything. Obviously Pie is my first priority, but how much of birthmother's issues are my responsibility?
Given our unique relationship, I feel like maternal towards Pie's birthparents as well. Like I need to take care of them...make sure they are eating, paying their bills, taking care of each other...
At this point I don't really need to worry about her relationship with Pie, maybe when she gets older, but right now it's cool. But I feel like in the mean time I need to take care of her birthmother. Am I crazy?
