  • do whats best for the child, and it sounds to me that being under the supervision of a drug addict is not it!

  • yes! Go take him!!! At least until your brother gets clean for good. You will regret it if something happens to that baby.

  • I don't know if you can just "take" him. Does your brother want you to raise him? If so I think you should absolutely do it rather than let your nephew go to genetic strangers.

  • Ask him if the baby can come stay awhile with you and see if you can get something in writing from him. Contact a lawyer and see how to go about getting custody of the baby. Poor baby!!!
