...your child has been removed from your home by Child Protective Services, and you were given the option of going to drug treatment/alcohol treatment/anger management/ etc. and instead you chose to sign your rights away? There is a girl that I know who actually did this. Her daughter was removed from her home when she was thirty days old because of abuse and drug use in the home. Instead of trying to get her daughter back, she continued using and drinking. The child's grandmother (my acquaintance's mother) wound up fostering the child. When her daughter was three, she finally signed her rights away so that her daughter could be adopted. She only had custody of her daughter for thirty days, and has made no effort to get her back since then. However, she now claims that she's her child's mother, always has been, always will be... and I have no idea who could consider themselves a mother in a situation like that...Answer Question

She is her mom, not a good mom but she still gave birth to her. Does she deserve to be a mom... no. Does she deserve to be called a mother.... no. But the truth is that she is a mom. Not a good one but is still a mom.
