Asked over 2 years ago - New Philadelphia, OH

She is 28 with 2 other children already has never been married. She has/had a drug & alcohol problem in the past & has said she does not want this child & is giving her 3 yearold up also. The oldest child lives out of state with her dad and she has no contact with her. She has no job and lives with me & I pay for everything. She refuses to ask for help from anyone.
