My 11 yr. old niece was taken temp. from my sister. My sister and mother have lived together for 12 yrs. and are both addicted to prescription drugs. It got bad enough that finally my niece was taken and put in my care until my sister cleans herself up. Now, I am in the position of the "bad guy" because I have the child. All I am doing is giving her a safe place to live so she's not put in foster care, but I am the monkey in the middle and it is not fun at all. My niece has anger issues because of all she has been through and she wants to go home to her mother, and I get the brunt of that. I can handle that, I just feel sorry for myself I guess. Now she doesn't get to see her Mom unless I drive the 30 min. to her house because she doesn't have a car or a job and it get exhausting, all the running I have to do.Answer Question

You are doing a great thing for a three of them. As far as the driving. Make a plan which days you are going. Let everybody know the plan ans stick to it. Once a week is enough if you ask me. I'm sure this kid needs some stability in her life. Knowing that she will see her mom from 1-4pm every Saturday should calm he down. Remind your sister that you never forced her to screw up her life and if she doesn't know how to be grateful you will put her child in foster care. (otherwise known as STFU) As far as the anger issues. Maybe some art therapy would be in order. Buy the girls some paints and ask her to paint how she feels. They do this in grief therapy. It helps the kids "get the emotions out."
