  • Perhaps if you take both the sister and baby? or is that what you meant?

  • u might also try to have ur sister live with u too. she would need to learn to be a mother to the baby no matter of whats goin on.. u should tell ur mom she needs to leave the drunk its not helpin her or her granddaughter or daughter.. its not easy to get on ur feet when u r supporting an adult...

  • Well, You could ask your sister to move in with you and your husband,

    And that way she wouldnt miss her child, because i wouldnt just give my baby away even if i lived in a box,
    I know that sounds horirble,

    but i love my kids,
    i would find ways to make them happy and keep them fed, !

  • Just tell her that you are willing to take the child until she is on her feet. Let them know you are there to help; they may be relieved that you offered.
    Good luck to you.

  • I agree with the other posters that suggested you have your sister and your baby both. It would be very hard to split up that pair.
