My sister died in a car accident last week, she was on her way to get her son at daycare. The day this happened we also lost our grandmother, that was eairler in the morning. Stephanie was on her way to get Roark and come to my moms house to be with the family.
After we got word that she died we went to the daycare. Stephanie didn't have another authorized person listed at the daycare to pick Roark up. So he had to go into state custody. Since that time, I have filed for provisional foster care, which means that after a home study and background checks he will come live with us.
To complicate things further, the father of the child is anything less than a model citizen. There is a restraining order in place that prevents him from having contact with Roark or my sister. He was in prison for 3rd degree battery and drugs.
What I really need is advice on how to handle all of this at once.
