I have always loved her and I want to adopt her


CHER ABBY: I’m thinking of asking my daughter-in-law “Gwen” (37, husband and three children) if she would like me to adopt her. I married her mother when Gwen was 2 years old. We divorced when she was 8 or 9 years old, so we have been without contact for about 25 years.

Gwen really doesn’t like her father. Her mom and I patched things up, so much so that we spent a few vacations together. Gwen participated in both.

We have a special bond that goes back to the first time I met her. She was a terror, and her mother, grandmother, and the rest of the family had all but abandoned her. But we clicked. I was patient with her and we became close.
