Im young 19 yrs to be exact and i am not a step mom, im not even a mom but my boyfriend has a daughter who is 19 months old. I saw some forums and thats this would be a good place to get some advise on my questions. I love my boyfriends daughter very much and from the beginning have been very worried about her. Her mom is young and her moms mom has a history with dcfs. It started with a couple bruises or scratches that are un explained and when he asks they get very defensive. she had a black eye and at one point her feces was green and black, his grandma and nurse said it could mean presence of blood from internal. My boyfriend called her mom and she again got defensuve and irrated with him. she is now in a size 5 almost size 5 1/2 shoe but she has came to us in size 3 and size 4 shoes. My boyfriend does pay child support and she should have enough to buy a decent pair of shoes. The lil girl is always dirty when i see her with her mom and always comes to his house dirty. The final straw and why I decided to ask for advice is because she has now came to his house witha sprained ankle and can not walk. Im very worried and have tried telling him to document or something everything that has been happening and he keeps telling me shes young and accidents happen. Which Id understand but the cleanliness and the shoes are not accidents. Am I over reacting or how can i show him something is wrong?
