My sister Teisha has an 8 month old son named Dy'Quon, he's a great little boy and I love him like my own. My sister is an alcoholic and intravenous drug user. I haven't seen or talked to her in a couple of months but from what I have been told she's getting really heavily into drugs and she's about to lose Dy'Quon. I do not in any way want to see this little boy be taken away from this family.

 

The sad part about all of this is that she doesn't care. She told us when she got pregnant that she didn't want him and from what I understand she still doesn't want him. I really want to talk to her about letting me have custody of her son. If someone doesn't do something this poor little boy could be seriously hurt and it terrifies me. I know I have 3 infants of my own but if I don't do something I am going to feel terrible. 

 

What do I do momma's?

That is a tough one. If you can get him you might have to choose to let her go. If she is a toxic influence on your household it might be best to let her go. Sorry. This is something you have to consider::::: What if you do get him? Will she be reeking havoc in your life? Will the boy have a better chance with a proper adoptive family? How will it affect your children?

I would think given her condition if you do take him, you would have to keep her away from him, you & your kids.

That is a hard one especially with the twins and all and I know you don't want to see him in another persons care if you help from other family memebers then I would because it's so much stuff hapening in the world I will pray for you and your family and hope everything goes well and whatever you decide you will make the right choice no matter what.
