What is the name of your state? Oklahoma.
My husband and I currently have guardianship of my niece who will be 2yrs old soon.
We have had her since she was 5months old.
My niece is the 5th child of lady who only has custody of her 6th child... due to violence/drugs and prison.
Two of her oldest daughters are mandated by the state to have counseling for severe sexual abuse.
The state still has custody of her son who is in the foster care system right now. He has severe mental problems due to severe abuse and neglect.
My niece was picked up by my mother at a drug house where my nieces mother had been passed out for 2-3 days, leaving my niece in the other room to lay in her own mess and not be fed for that whole time.
A judge in Tulsa, Ok gave us emergency custody, because the mother had come out and tried to snatch the baby out of our home and ended up dropping her down a flight of stairs. She was heavily doped up at the time.
Now over a year later without hearing a word from her or knowing where she is..... she calls and tells us she is seeing an attorney and wants the baby back.
Can anyone please tell us how we can stop this?
She has severely damaged all her other children and wants none of them back, but is going to come after this baby... we believe it is for revenge upon my brother who is serving a 23yr sentence for manufacturing meth.
Does she not have any responsibility to the child in state foster care who has no family wanting him? But can instead come after this baby who is with family and well cared for and not in foster care?
Any advice is helpful... thank you.What is the name of your state?
