I found out a day or so ago that I have a brand new baby niece by a brief call from a woman indigent know who was the baby's mother's grandmother.
Well today my dh got a letter from his brother (who is in prison) telling us that the baby's mother is also locked up and they want us to take temporary custody of the baby!!!!!
I am soooooo ecstatic!!!!!! Omg I'm shaking I'm so happy.
Ok so of course I'm going to go Google and most likely hire a lawyer for all this but I'd just love to hear from you guys if any of you have ever been in this situation. What do I need to get the ball rolling?
Also, the baby was born in Virginia (and currently living with her great grandmother there) and I live in California, so that may complicate things a bit.
But please share with me your first hand knowledge!
Like I said, I'm going to Google info but I'd love to gather info here as well!
