I have 2 bonus children that came with the husband.... child 1 stated they are being hurt by mums partner - significant bruising was present. Child 1 also stated they get put in a buggy as punishment by mum and more bruising consistent with buggy straps were present. Child 2 confirmed these two things are regular occurrences. Child 1 is way over buggy age and we haven't used one for at least 3 years.
Long story short; called police to safeguard both kids. Mum's partner is banned from mums house by police.
Children staying here whilst investigations are ongoing.
Child 2 missing mum but also anxious about getting told off for telling the truth and is having tearful outbursts.
I know me and Hubby have done the right thing but why do I feel like the A Hole? This is keeping me up at night.
34, tired and emotional 😪
Ps. Why is there no bonus parent guidebook!! This role should at least come with a government warning *not your children but you will be emotionally invested and get zero say in what happens to them even though you love them as your own*
