THE LOOOOOOOOOOONG Story:
I am sick with worry for my niece. This is a long story but I’ll try to keep it short. Her mother, (who is my sister through a kinship adoption) has been diagnosed with many psychological disorders, which include but are not limited to: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, opposite definiance disorder, and she has the emotional and mental maturity of about tweleve years old.
My sister is off her meds and refuses to go back on them. She has been violent in the past when off her meds.
She has no interest in the baby, won't hold her. Goes long periods of time without feeding her or changing her. She is shutting out people from helping with the baby although she does not want to care for the baby herself.

Report her and offer to care for the child. Family gets a chance to care for the child first before a foster home. Speak up and let them know you want the baby. More than likely you or another family member will get the baby.
