I was married to ex dh for 6 years, together for 7. He had two nephews and a niece who I was very close to during those years. They were 2,3 and 5 when ex dh and I met. The 3 year old was the same age as older ds, so they played all the time together and was at our house all the time. Then ex dh and I split up, he dated his brothers gf(nephews mom) so it made is very awkward and I never saw nephews or niece again.(do i hear someone chanting jerry in the background? lol) anyway, to make a long story short, the nephews and niece are now thugs. They drink, do drugs, have been to juvy and are in bloodcript gangs. They are 13, 14 and 17 now. The 17 yo has pictures of her boobs on her myspace(down her bikinni top but still) and they are all pictured smoking and drinking and thugging out. I am so sad for them. I loved those children, they have terrible environments, they dont know any better their dads are in jail and their moms both just got out of jail. I just see their sweet faces and want to cry. That is all.
