This isn't right! (Rant)

My step-daughter was kidnapped by her mother about 5 years ago. Her mother violated a court order stating she could not leave the state without the written permission from the court and my husband. Fast forward 4 years later, my husband finally locates his daughter as she is in foster care in another state. Mother lost her due to having Munchausens By Proxy. We got temporary custody of his daughter last July and filed violation of court order papers against the mother when custody was made permanant last November. Turns out our case will probably be dismissed because we didn't file the papers soon enough. It took my husband 4 years to find his daughter! Don't you think in this case the court would have enough sense to violate the mother?!?!

  • Thanks vbruno! And to top it all off, my step-daughter is in counseling because she was mentally, physically and sexually abused while she was with her mother, as well as being starved, exposed to drugs and made to live in filth. I just want to strangle her mother!

  • Youd think! Wow, I cant believe they put her in foster care. I guess they didnt think to help find the dad? Good luck. Definitely seek legal counsel.
