My best friend wants to adopt her niece because her mother is a druggie and is always moving around with her. The girls mother just got out of prison about a year ago and has gone back to using drugs and being neglectful. My friend tells her she would love to take her but she has to sign her over to her so she can get help from the state for daycare because she is a single mom who can't afford her otherwise. The girls mom said no and is still moving her around. I really feel for her becauce no child should have to go through this. What can she do to legally take her from her mother? Any input on your experience would be grateful. She doesn't want her sister to hate her but she is sick of what she is doing to her daughter....

I have a friend that did this with her niece and nephew because of alcohol.They were told it is best to go through the system because they also received help with the extensive therapy that was needed.They didn't need help with food,clothes and regular med but at 24,000.00 a year in uncovered therapy they needed the help.Things are better now and moving forward everyday.Good luck to your friend My friend chose not to adopt because she hoped her brother would get his life together,they still call her mom, it's been 7 yrs. they are adopting now.
