My brothers son, born premi just 4 days ago has been reported to DCF for abuse b/c his mom is on drugs. They are starting their investigation and will most likely take the baby. My husband and I want him. What do i do?
Quoting OP-"My brother does want the baby...
I asked my brother for the baby-said no-before the state was involved (he doesn't know they are-yet)."
I am a bit confused...if your brother is wanting the baby, HE would be FIRST on the list. Oh, wait....HIS GF has issues. Nevertheless, the state has to rule him out before other family gets involved. It's NOT first-come, first-served. They will do home studies on EVERYONE and THEN determine what is in the child's best interests....which could be you. Good luck!
