My sister is an alcoholic. She was recently in the hospital and is now sober, but has been for only a short time. After getting out of the hospital, her husband, who was also an alcoholic, died from liver failure and pancreatitis. On the day he died, his family immediately took their daughter and they are refusing to give her back. They went to court to get temporary custody of her, and were successful. I can understand their concern, but they told a lot of lies in court, while a lot of it was the truth, they lied quite a bit too. Yes, my sister is an alcoholic, but she has never hurt her daughter. Don't they have to prove any of these lies? I'm so upset by this, my sister isn't a bad mother. I understand how this sounds, but please no bashing.

If they already have temporary custody then there's no much to do but wait until the next custody hearing. There your sister can go and prove that's she's a fit mother. Unfortunatly, that's what she has to do at this point.
