Hey my name is Jennifer and i just moved to montana about 3 weeks ago, from utah. I really did not want to move because i move every 3 to 4 years to a new state. Now that im a Sophmore in high school i really dont like to move. Im trying to get emancipated because I am emotionally and verbaly abused by my "step father." I am also emotionally and verbaly not as badly by my mother. Im tired of being called names and being accused of things i didnt say and that thing i havent done. My mother and "step father" have been together for 9 years. My mom was a very very big acoholic about 5 years ago. They would both leave my 4 brothers and I at home alone all night while they went to bars and stayed out all night partying. They have only seprated for 1 year and that was the best year of my life since i was 6 years old. My mother and "step father" fight all the time canstantly always arguing about stupid little things and i always get put in the middle of it all. Im always blamed for what happens to them and i always get told that im just trying to break them up because i very much dis like my "step father." He still drinks like a fish and my mom buys it for him. But then again she tells me that she is tired of him and wants a divorce but that never happends. She tells me that she is going to leave him and it always falls through it gets to the point that she already has a house that she has paid the down pament on then she calls them and tells them she cant move in. Im tired of all this and just want to get out of the drama. Im tired of feeling that im the one that that is in the wrong. I cry myself to sleep everynight thinking what could i have done better that day to not be yelled and and called names. I have been put in a foster care before because my mom got so drunk one night she couldnt take care of my brothers or I. My grandparent took custody of me and my brothers after they got us out of foster care. My brothers are all grown and out of the house they all are not doing very good most all of them are on drugs and have dropped out of high school. I want to finish high school and go to college i dont want to be like them. But at the rate that im going right now that will never happen. I dont get up in the morning because i feel what ever i do is wrong. I ran away which was stupid before i came to montana and i got caught and put in to some night holding facility thing. There were people there to talk to me but they never listen to what i have to say. People think that im treated just fine because of what i have and what i wear but they dont look in the inside to see what is going on. Im not going to lie i do get almost everything i ask for but that is after im yelled and cursed at all day. I would really apperciate your comments to tell me if im a canadate for emancipation in montana and what i should do to proceed in doing this! Thank You!
