…nt from the first time because I had a five-year-old daughter at home, and not only did I miss her, I didn’t want for her to become jealous of the new baby before she even arrived. I decided to go home every weekend and sign a release form that I was leaving at my own risk.

I think many of my daughter’s problems arose when Alex got sick. She never forgave him for changing things. She has been an extremely abusive big sister, who changed him from a little boy who thought she hung the moon into a cynical and suspicious kid who constantly expects the worst.
But truthfully? She must have been predisposed to be a certain way. Some kids become protective of a fragile sibling? Others become jealous. ☹
