Your situation is undoubtedly challenging. It seems Anya is struggling with the idea of your daughter, Lena, living with you and her during Sveta’s work abroad. Anya’s strong reaction, including threats to leave and harm your relationship with your unborn child, creates a difficult dilemma.
You’ve considered the option of Lena staying with Sveta’s parents, but you worry about the perception it might create. On the other hand, complying with Anya’s ultimatum seems unfair to your daughter.
It’s important to prioritize open communication. Explain to Anya that this situation is temporary and that Lena will not be a permanent resident. Emphasize Lena’s responsible and helpful
nature and reassure Anya that her concerns will be addressed. It might be helpful to seek professional guidance or counseling to navigate this complex family dynamic.
Ultimately, a decision should prioritize the well-being of all involved, maintaining a balance that ensures Lena’s care without jeopardizing your relationship with Anya and the new baby.
