Been raising my Grandaughter for better part of 5 years due to a drug addicted daughter. Baby, who is 5 now was removed this last time 3/14/14 . I took her to doctors, dentists had her in school and was being pretty much her mother. Santa, easter bunny Birthday, all the while my daughter never contacted child. CPS told me there is no hope since they did try everything with daughter to help her. She just wasn't going do it. Long story short. I was talked into applying for custody. In the meantime where my daughter was staying and getting her drugs, babays father, he got bustee and given 6 years. This is what I am so upset over, my daughter did her usual and went into detox then a bother rehab. Little girl kept telling me Mee Maw I don't want to live with Mommy I want to stay here. I promised her that. Well when you go for custody, I didn't realize CPS closes case on daughter. My daughter got GD from aunt and now haven't seen in2 and a half mo. Its wrong CPS let me down #1

My grandson is 14 he has been living with my cousin and his partner since he was 9 at first everything seemed to be going well than once he was going on 14 they started to give me a hard time visiting with him I filed a visitation petition went to court and being that my grandson is 14 the law guardian said that he doesn't want to visit with me at this time. I believe in my heart that my cousin is saying things to him to make him state this as before he went to live with them he was with me for years went back to his mother who did not do right 4 him in anyway I felt this best thing for him at the time was for him to reside with my cousin and now I regret having done so. My heart aces so bad I sit here crying not knowing what to do anymore and my daughter his mother is useless she didnt even show up at court the father was there but my daughter called my cousin lawyer and told her she does not want my grandson to even see his father. What is the best way to go about handling this? #2

Patricia, I feel your pain, havent been allowed to see my grandchildren for over a year. I have exhausted all my resourses and I can't get help either. My grandchildren are being put through so much and as a grandparent we want to help them but we have no rights. That is what they tell me anyway. #4
