  • I need more info. What is her reasoning for wanting to take her, and why do you think she might be able to do it? What is the story behind this question?

  • well noone can just take your child unless she is being abused by you. is there some reason your mil would think you were abusing her

  • First of all, she has no right to your child. Unless there's a very legitimate reason, no one can take your baby away. And even if they could, the baby wouldn't automatically go to her. Is there more to the story? Because if she's using your having two other children as a reason, she has about a 1 in a million chance of gaining custody of your daughter.

  • I'm with lovingmy4babies. Why do you think she can do this? If you are already raising 2 boys then I don't see how she could take her. Definitely need more info.

  • I would need more info to actually say if she could or not, but unless she can prove you unfit,I don't see her getting custody of your DD, if you have 2 sons which you already care for then what is her reasons for this?

  • No one can take your child from you just because she has a disability or birth defect or illness. If you're not abusing or neglecting your kids, then you have nothing to worry about.

  • ok I just seen why she is talking this and No she cannot take her from you because your DD is or may be having a disability ,so ignore her!

  • She has to prove you unfit or the court does. Unless you are doing something seriously wrong, you should be fine. Take care of yourself, your kids, and baby to me. Good luck with all and God Bless
