  • Did she say what she had to do ? Were you expecting to watch them for DAYS?? I would worry if I were you, unless this is common from her???

  • She hasn't called or come pick them up in three days? How long were you originally suppost to watch them?

  • No she told me that night and she will be back the next day. It's just to much on me I have 3 girls and one on the way 24 weeks and then 2 more to many.

  • If she's been gone for that long, call the police and file a missing persons report.

  • Sounds like abandonment if she hasn't been kidnapped. Why isn't Granny taking care of them? Isn't her own mother concerned for her welfare?

  • I'm confused? Her mom said she had to work or her mom said that her daughter (the kids mom) is haveing to work and thats why she isnt picking them up? I would take them to her anyway, the kids grandma, and drop them off. that is rediculous. Or call the cops and put out a missing persons report if you think something else may be wrong. Did the grandma say if she had even talked to her daughter? Or just that she cant take them. Do the kids have a dad you could call. I might be calling cps if I were you, sounds like te mom is really irresponsible and doesnt deserve them.

  • Will she always just go but she know I have kids and 24 weeks. Her mom do not care like that cause she know how she is. But when I told her mom that I'm going to drop them off she said no cause she had to work. She know how her daughter is and she said she need to keep her job. But I know she is nt missing she doing something she do not need to be doing.

  • Call the police! That's child abandonment, plain and simple.

  • I'm a little confused about the question. The grandma said she had to go to work or grandma said the kids mom had to work? Either way, that's a long time to have someone's kids and not hear from them. I'd find family and give the kids to them or call the police.

  • Ok, I just read your last reply. If the girl isn't missing and she doesn't come to get her children and the grandma doesn't want them, I'd call the police and let them know what's going on.
