I am a grandmother who raised the two children of my daughter. They were born in my house, and she took off when they were 2 and 8 months respectively.
I never in any way restricted her having the children in any way. She didn’t ask for them that often. When the oldest was 11 and a half, she decided she wanted to be a mother, and just took them, and wouldn’t give them back. The oldest is 14, and has had to deal with the homelessness of her mother. The younger child came back to live with us after just 3 months.
The mother gave birth to another child in May 2012. In Sept. 2012, my daughter became homeless again, and left the area.
The older child stayed with me again. The baby died under strange circumstances, a month later. I arranged for the older child to VISIT her other grandmother, half sister, and father, for a month or so, to remove her from the death of her brother, her mother’s homelessness, and obvious drug abuse.
Maybe 3 weeks later, her grandmother gets tired of her being around, not due to any disrespect on the part of the child, and calls CPS and gets rid of her. I later found out that she has mental problems. She never called me, or any of my family that are all over the area. Just called CPS out of the blue.
It has been a nightmare trying to get her home. Thankfully she is staying with my sister, but all the crap they want her to do is bringing on hard feelings.
I need help!!!
