My sister has been in abusive relationships before. She has a 12 year old daughter who I am very close to and who I care for incredibly. My sister just started a relationship with a guy just two weeks ago and already he is staying over almost every night, they are both drinking and smoking (possibly pot, too). My niece has stayed with us a few days and calls me regularly. She says she is afraid for her mom and doesn't like the alcohol use. She says she can't sleep because of her mom's new boyfriend. She said she tried to tell her mom that she feels unimportant and uncared for. I'm so sad. I want my niece to trust God and know that she doesn't have to make the same choices in her own life. I'm so scared for both my sister and my niece. I need to let go and let God and it's so hard.
