I see Farrah in a completely different light. I think she is devastated that Sophia will never know her father. Of course she is selfish and immature (getting upset when Sophia didn't want to listen to the letter or cards, etc.), but she is so much like her mom. When Farrah and her mom were in the therapist's office, the mom spoke about Farrah as though she wasn't in the room. She also spoke as if she has control over who sees Sophia and who doesn't. She said "we" don't want anything to do with Derek's family. That really pissed me off. Who is she to speak for Farrah. I wonder what Derek's family thinks of the whole situation. I do not like that mom and think she should butt out. She's not helping Farrah in any way at all. And the hitting is out of control. The first time we saw her hit Farrah, I was outraged. You don't hit your child! Then when she got arrested....that would have been the end of that relationship had that been me. Maybe better mothering would have prevented Farrah's spoiled behavior, but obviously hitting her did not change it.
