I had my neice and nephew living with us a while back, had them for a year while their Dad was in jail and their Mom wasn't fit to care for them (still on drugs). That was about 2 years back. Now their Dad meant a chick online, completely dropped everything in Idaho and gave away all his stuff to move to California, without a thought to his kids apparantly. Kids Mom freaked out cause she thought the kids were moving to Cali too, which was the plan, but not until school started. So she came and got the kids, thier Dad has full custody but lets their Mom see them and spend time with her, Well now my stupid bro in law (the Dad) has decided to let the kids stay with their Mom for the school year and he will have them in the summer. My wife is pretty darn sure their Mom is still on meth (we have notified the authorites in her town) and my mother and father in law are trying to get sole custody of the kids. They have been talking to a lawyer and are now trying to raise the money to do so. This is messed up parents not caring enough about their kids to do anything for them. I am so pissed we worked hard with them (they were in first grade when we had them) and since we had them my nephews reading has not improved at all. My neice throws temper tantrums daily which she did before she lived with us and for the first two weeks she lived with us. My nephew feels like neither his Dad or Mom want or love him at all and so does my neice. My neice told my wife she doesn't want to go with her Mom but she will because she wants her Mom to know that she loves her. These poor kids have been shuffled around since they were born. Living with grandparents (on both sides) mostly but not really having a good parent figure at all. Not to toot my own horn but they behaved better when they lived with us and seemed to be happy most of the time (my nephew missed his Dad something fierce but we talked about it and it made him feel better) Anyway as a new Dad I am so mad at these poeple, to selfish and self involved to realize what they are doing is at best making their kids lives miserable and at worst damaging their emotional and mental states for life. Anyway if my mother and father in law get custody we think they will come and live with us again. Hopefully we can get the money to do this, I will sell the blazer if I have to. They are great kids and deserve better. Anyway say a little prayer for these kids. Whatever happens they need a better life .
