Last week CPS called me and ask if I would like to take temp. custody of my niece, I said yes, I would rather her be with family than in foster care. My step sister in law delivered June 2, and there where traces of marijuana and meth in their system therefor CPS took them and handed them over to me. Since the day that I brought her home for the hospital (10 days ago) there have been noting but problems. The mother getting angry with me when I let her know whats happening with her child. Not to mention my in laws, my husband and I where so close, and I feel that as if they are defending her knowing what she has done, and treating me badly. My Mother / Sister in law feels as if I should stay home (other than work) and so as they wish. I feel under appreciated and like I made a huge mistake by keeping the family together. Maybe I'm over reacting?
Sorry to vent but any input would be greatly appreciated.... Thanks.
You did the right thing by taking her kids. I hope you have explained to your family why you did it..After that . Just ignore there opinions.
