Ready for freedom
I raised my step daughter since she was 2 years old. Her birth mother passed away when she was a baby. Now after 10 years of marriage, my husband and I are getting a divorce. My husband has pawned his daughter off on his second oldest son and his wife, so her father is not even taking care of her. I took care of her for almost a year after he left us. What are my chances of getting custody or visition rights. I am the only person she has known as a mom. Of all my step children, she is the only one that ever did call me mom. We live in the state of Illinois. Please help!
