DEAR ABBY: My daughter “Scarlet” has a precious 18-month-old baby girl I’ll call Sierra.
DEAR ABBY: My granddaughter, “Emily,” is 13. I have been very involved with her all her life.
DEAR ABBY: How old does a child have to be before she is able to choose a relative to live with? I’m the one my granddaughter wants to stay with.
