My cousin (I grew up w like a baby sister) is married w 1 step daughter 1 bio daughter and ready to have another baby next week both of her kids are her dh's. Here is the kicker.... the step daughter is in a foster home and has been for a year..the court questions she had been molested by someone either bio mom or my cousins dh or friends..... so far getting the child 3 back home has been impossible!
Now she's a week away from delivering another baby w a 2 yr old at home. I've never been in a nastier house (yes I've helped her clean it multiple times last time I cleaned 58 hours) it still gets trashed! I have tried to help her w money... for a year she doesn't want help. Neither parent works..actually they both refuse and are on welfare.
She calls last week and tells me they are broke they get 800 dollars on the 5th and in 3 days they are flat broke for the month... I told her I didn't have any extra $$ this month. And then she tells me they have fleas in the house from the dog and they are biting her and dd2 while they sleep...tjen she says they have had them a month and haven't done anything about it...then she says they have had lice for 2 weeks also....
What do I do? No baby or children should live through any of this! Should I just turn my head and hand over $$ or should I brake down and call dss?
