I sent my daughter to FL to stay with my aunt for a little while until i get some things together up here. she is only suppose to be staying there until i get a real apartment up here (Im renting a room right now). But i feel like going to get her sooner than that. my aunt is trying to convince me to leave her down there but she doesnt know or understand how hard it is being away from your child. what should i do? i know by bringing her back here to live in a one room place could get me into alot of trouble and possibly get her thrown into a foster home. but i cant stand missing these times that i need to be there for. (my daughter is 18 months old and shes been in FL since april) i didnt see her walk, shes starting to talk and i dont want her to not know who i am. this is killing me plz help.

Of course you should be with your daughter. They don't take toddlers away from mothers that live in one room. I was staying with one of my sons and he and his wife and my toddler grandson have a one bedroom apartment. I called CPS to make sure they couldn't get in trouble with me being there (3 adults and one child in a one bedroom apartment). The CPS lady was very nice and said there was no problem. In Arizona there is no limit to the number of people living together and the size of the place they are living. I would be more concerned about your aunt getting custody of your daughter because you sent her away.
