My story started to good but today has changed. My birth daughter's emotional issues are to the extent she is developmentally a pre teen in behavior but a grown woman. I experience a tantrum that turned into a passive aggressive manipulation of gargantuan proportions. I don't want to reject her but these issues I don't know can be overcome. I'm also worried she is mentally ill and it could have come from me. I identified with her outburst yet reacted swiftly to deal with it since it lacked the mature response I had come to expect. Her mom appeared so stricken and it hurt me to see her pain. So I swept in like the Hun I can be and chastised her. I now feel manipulated into this situation because I have become the villain of her tantrum. I am praying it works out but at the same time wish nothing more to do with her. Am I a bad person for this? I feel somewhat, yes. But we must move on and as her birth mom, I believe it is my duty to guide her. #1
