My older sister lost her 2 children ages 5 and 7 to DSS custody and were placed with me. I have 2 year old twins and I am 8 weeks pregnant with #3. They were going to school 45 minutes away and I drove them every morning and picked them up every afternoon. I did this for a little over 2 weeks and it cost me over $300 in gas. We went to court and DSS said they do not plan to give the children back within 6 months. I am so stressed out right now. They have finally agreed to change schools. Her children DO NOT listen to me at all! They are mean to my children and my kids have started acting up by copying them. I love my sister, but we have never been close. I am starting to think this is not going to work out, especially considering my 3rd child is due in December and we only have a 3 bedroom house. I am planning on telling the social worker that they need to find another placement. Am i wrong? How do I tell my sister?

Wow.....those children are your family. Do what you want, but like you said you believe in Karma. God forbid anything should happen to you or your hubby and your sister told social services that they would have to find other placement for your children.
