i just got through a divorce, and my mother in law took my boys from me. she took them away saying that im mentally unstable, ive never not once laid my hands on my kids. now im missing out on their preschool years, im missing out on every thing. right now i told her she can keep them cause i dont have a stable house or income for my children. is it a good thing that i told her that?  my heart aches for my children everyday, i try not to think about my decision because it hurts so much. do you think i did what was best for my boys? keeping them at my ex mother in laws rather then on and off the street with me.

If you feel your home isnt good for your kids right now and they will be bes offt with her right now then its the right choice.Get things together and then bring em back home.I would visit them non stop tho if it was me.I wish you the best.God bless Oh why dont the father take them?

That is the hardest decision to make but it sounds like your boys are in a stable home which is best for them. This allows you time to get yourself a home for them, a good job, and get set up so you can take them home.

The father doesnt want his parental right. he visits them about twice a month. I would visit my kids but my ex mother in law will not allow me, she wants to put a restraining order against me. it is a very hard decision. thank you both for replying to my post.
