about 4 years ago we got temporary custody of my husbands daughter. The reason - her mother kept dropping the child off for unscheduled visits and would leave her daughter with us she would say that she would be back in a couple of days and then it might be a month. The mother remarried again and shortly after they were married the child told us that her stepfather had abused her sexually -reasons why we felt we needed to get custody of her. TheMother comes to court and says that she has removed the stepfather -she was going to change and be a better mother . The outcome was she got the child back and we got a credit on child support .Answer Question

Do everything that you can to protect that child from a very unstable mother. Bottom Line...get custody and document everything...dates times and pix if possible of the abuse, neglect and ignorance of her mom. She needs dependable, responsible parents, who will love her and care for her. If you don't intercede, she may turn out just like the mom. Good Luck!
