Okay, so don't judge me, because I really am just struggling and trying to figure out the right thing to do. I'm not stupid and I'm not a monster, I'm in a tough situation. Grandma has custody of ten-year old girl and twelve-year old boy, the boy has serious medical issues. Mom wants to take them to apartment with no heat overnight. Grandma has warm place for them to stay, but mom is being stupid. Grandma has legal custody of kids and will probably cave in and send them with as many warm blankets as she can gather up because she can't stand up to the mom. The logical choice at first glance is to call CPS. But the thing is, those kids have already been through the wringer with CPS since they were toddlers. Yanked around, hither and yon, and it's almost Christmas. Maybe I'll be doing them more harm than good, and it would be better to just heap the blankets on and let the mom have her selfish way so they can get back to their grandma's warm loving home tomorrow, which is where they want to be more than anything in the world instead of packing them off to some strange place for the holidays and breaking their hearts again. Please, for the love of God, help me get my mind straight, my friends. And ifyou want to ream me out, at least wait till after I've made a decision about what to do first, okay?

Maybe I am reading this wrong but you are wanting to call CPS because the mom wants to take the kids for just one night and she doesn't have heat? As long as they have blankets or something to keep them warm, I see no problem. I hope someone doesn't call CPS on me for taking my son camping!
