My husband and I value the educations of our kids. Since I have lots of nieces and nephews, Bob and I decided to try to help some of them. So since living here for over seven years now, we’ve been helping them. One of them lived with my parents since she was just a baby. When my Dad got ill I promised him that I will take care of my niece that lived with us and I will be the one responsible for her going to school. When Bob and I got married we did fulfill what we promised to my mom and dad. We did sent that niece of mine to a good school in high school and in college. She studied nursing course in Ateneo De Davao University. During her first year it was good because she had nice classmates, they will hang out at our house when off school which we like it so that we would know what they are doing. During her second year she has different classmates and we didn’t know who they are. She starts to come home late at night. If asked what are you doing she will just answered back that they are working on some projects. We did believed her. One time Bob and I talked to her and asked her if she had a hard time in her subjects, and she said yes so we did offer for her to go for tutor and will pay for it she told us she has no time because her classes schedule are tight. So we just said okay. Later that semester she’s acting strangely we were observing her. She goes out more frequently and coming home like 1am. We find out that she’s hanging out with her classmates and they’re drinking. My gosh, we were really devastated because we sent her to a very expensive and really good school and she doesn’t even care for it. We didn’t even care how much, we just want for her to go to a good school. We did all of this because we care and we love her. When we found out that my niece was drinking and coming home late me and my husband decided to let her stop for a year of school and she will just work and help in our business. My husband was just too nice he let her have 4 choices of what she wants to do.
1st choice- to stay with us but she has to quit school for a year and help in the business and around the house.
2nd choice- for her to move out and get work and stay in boarding house and find job. We will support her for 2 months while she’s looking for a job.
3rd choice- to go home in her parents and stay there with them.
4th choice- to stay with my sister and help them.
Well, she choose the second one. TO MOVE OUT. She doesn’t want to help us or something to do with us I guess. So she moves out, I paid the boarding house and gave her some money for food. Well, the following week after she moves out at our house we found out that she moves out also on the boarding house that I paid. She told us later that she stayed with some friends house. She was away for over a year. Well, like about a month or so ago her sister found her. I had a feeling she knows all along where her sister was but not want to tell us. Anyway, they found her and brought her to our house and I was shocked to find out that she had a baby already. It was really a shocked to all of us. We love the baby she doesn’t know what’s going on. It just sad that my niece didn’t finished her school yet to get a good job to support for the baby. I hope someday she can go back to school. I hope the father of the baby will support her on that. I really want the best thing for the baby, good life and good health. My niece has to really make a lot of sacrifices now for that.
