My sister had a baby at age 16. None of us were suprised that she wasn't mature enough to step up to motherhood 100%.
The father's mother took guardianship of the baby as her son an my sister were immature, fighting constantly, and partying.
Anyways. My sister cleaned up her act, big time, starting at age 17, when the baby was one. She finished highschool, got a job, and now has her own place. She hosted her daughters second birthday at her new place a few months ago and is always eager to visit her daughter. Thing is, they never had a C/O.
Now, she just got the papers saying the fathers mom is trying to terminate her parental rights. She's claiming that my sister comes from a long line of mental illness, doesn't keep up with her visits (the woman denies her visits because of no C/O), and that her daughter doesn't feel "attached" to her mom.
There's never been a hearing, C/o set in place, anything. From what I thought I knew it took much more to terminate a mothers rights. Does she have a case? Can this actually happen? I thought it was when the mom was wayyyy worse or showed no interest in mothering. The child is TWO. Is that enough time for the courts to consider her a fail parent?
What's going on! I'm stressed ladies:/
