just hopeless

Hi everyone. I know this might not be the best place to share this. However, I am just so lost. I don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. In fact, just some support would be good too. Here's my story. I got married last year to a wonderful man. He already had a 2 year old daughter at the time of our wedding. I accepted her as my own daughter. We have become quite close over this time. The problem is that my husband passed away two months ago. He was in a car accident. Now, on top of dealing with this loss, I am locked in a custody battle for his daughter. My husband's mother wants custody. I know I have no blood relation to the girl, but I can't just give her up. What do I do?

Welcome to the community. We are so sorry for your loss.

Love is not about a blood creation, it is a deep, personalconnection that two people share.  I hope for you and your daughter’ssake, you are about to find a peaceful resolution to this. We wish you the best. -GS
