Ok, my husbands cousin was adopted into his family. We have two small children of our own and live in Iowa. I'm 21 and my husband is 24. She has been in and out of the hospital for trying to kill herself and its all because she gets picked on and yelled at all the time because she's not the "biological" family member. It is a very long story. We just need to know how we can go about getting custody of her. She's in the hospital again and my husbands cousin has no intentions of giving her up! She lives with her adoptive dad and grandparents....she needs help...they are doing the bare minimum health wise to keep her in their custody.....she needs help and people around her who will love her and we want her but have no idea where to start! Please help!Answer Question
