What is the name of your state? ky
I am the gandmother of a one year old, who was placed in my temporary custody after her parents were charged with neglect. Both parents have a long history of drug use and legal problems. We are doing family planning through social services and they have supervised visitation with both parents at her other grandmothers home at least 3 times a week. As you can imagine my sons girlfriend hates the fact that I have custody of the child and has made it known from day one. I have provided a safe, stable and loving inviroment for my granddaughter since she was placed with me in early july. I have followed all the visitation and family planning criteria. I was called in for a meeting last wensday and told the parents want the baby to be placed in foster care, the mother stated that she cannot progress as long as the child is with me because of her dislike for me. The parents have not been able to maintain a drug free life style nor have they been able to move from her mothers home since they lost custody. I am amazed that s.s. are willing to actually set up a court date to petition to have the child put in foster care when she has a good home with relatives all on the whim of someone whose mind is clouded with drug use. The mother has had a very strong, close relationship with s.s in our small town since she was young and they feel sorry for her. She also has two other children by her ex and he has had custody of both those children for 3 years. Their ages are 6 and 3. Please help me keep my granddaughter out of the foster care system! I love her very much! Thanks!
