For the first year we took care of the kids because she was not financially stable, but had enough money to go out all the time. (she got evicted, and even ran up bills that she is not taking care of, in my husbands name) She never came around, nor did she really call. I made all appointments for doctors and so on, I was pregnant during this time and she never volunteered to help, or would help when asked.
Now she is living with a man, who she just had a baby with, he does not step up what so ever, and now we are keeping the kids on her weeks because she is unable again to take care of them again financially. What should I do?

I was in your shoes 3 years ago. I couldn't handle 2 step kids + my own. It got out of hand & when ex husband continued to be an ass, I left. I was not going to be someones door mat. But, i understand you. I was taking care of HER kids 24/7. There was nothing i could do about it, but either leave, or deal. Her place was dangerous for the kids though in many ways, so it was hard for me to even LET them EVER go over there. Just hang in there. She will miss her kids eventually, & her baby wont always be a new born. You can never be sure about her boyfriend either, be cautious of who the kids are hanging with.
