Are you a mom?
If so, you can ask real moms your parenting questions and get answers in minutes!
So some of you may remember that I posted a while back that I was going to get my 15 month old grandson and raise him for awhile, as my son and dil were using drugs, homeless, etc. Basically an out of control trainwreck. Well, my dil decided she didn't want to give up her son, and left the state to prevent me from taking him. (I honestly just wanted him while the two of them enrolled in a Mom and Dad's Program to get clean and sober).
She has since then been livng with cousins on her side of the family, or in shelters, or on the street, using drugs, not eating well or proving for my grandson. Ive had people out looking for her, etc.
Finally a cousin was able to pin her down long enough to serve her with papers wanting custody of my grandson. The cousin is in the same state, and could get the papers served, and go to trial etc. My dh and I were never able to find her long enough to do any of that... She would take the baby and run as soon as we found her at a shelter, etc.
Anyway, DHS stepped in, did an evaluation, and the courts gave temp custody to the cousin. Now for the crazy part: My dil calls me yesterday, and asks for money for a lawyer to get her son back. She FLAT OUT ADMITS TO ME THAT SHE HAS BEEN ABUSING MY GRANDSON, but says since she did so in the cousins house, and the cousin didnt stop her, the cousin is as guilty as she is.
WTH??????? I talked with the cousin many times. She was frantic to stop it, she intervened all the time, and finally went to court for custody. She did everything put slam my DIL's face into the wall. But what kind of a total nutjob admits to a grandma she has been abusing their grandchild, and asks for money to hire a lawyer to get him back?????
Thank God she was 500 miles away or I think I would have killed her....
