Why does she have to wait until she is sober a year? Quite frankly she is sober now. This was a voluntary guardianship. I have seen the STATE return children to parents that have only a few months sobriety. She can get her children now. You are the one who always says that PARENTS rights supercede grandparents and that they are ALWAYS superior to parents when it comes to the children. Now why is that changing in this case?

Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
