SHe went to school and the police took her bac He has been verbally and physically abusive to her. the dad is never around. From what we were just told this is not the first time it has happend her father has also slapped her around. She is only 16 my sister passed away from cancer and the father after years and years of no contact and a couple of hours of visitation during there life took them away. The father has been arrested for drug charges, and the grandma is a raging acoholic. The kids were told never to tell us or they were never gonna see us again.
