    What a horrible night......

    Quite a few of you know the problems I've had with my sister and nephew. She's been in an abusive relationship with a husband who uses. She & the baby(he's 3)have stayed with us off on on and last year we even managed to get her to file for a restraining order & divorce and file for sole custody and then in to a safe house....she went back to him.

    Well, it all blew up last night. His parole officer came to pick him up and apparently the place was a disastor and they found paraphanelia(sp)in the house so they took my nephew away.

    I spent the morning on the phone with the social worker and am trying to get my nephew, the social worker has to contact me and run backgrounds on Kurt and I, then investigate the house. Then HOPEFULLY, we can go to court on monday to get temp. custody of my nephew. I am just sick that he's going to have to be there until then

    So any extra good thoughts you can spare for my little nephew I"d appreciate them. I appreciate it.

    Oh no, Tina! That poor baby. Where is your sister now? I'll be praying for you to get custody of him very, very quickly. Can you call and see if there is any way at all to speed things along to get to court on Friday, so he won't have to be there for the weekend? How horrible! Curse that blasted "father" of his and big, big old hugs to you.

    Oh Dmom, your story just breaks my heart. Thank god your nephew has you and your husband in his life. Hopefully all will go well with the social worker so you can care for the little one and provide him with the love and stability he deserves.

    I wish there were something I could do to help.

    Awww Tina!!!

    I am hear for you no matter what. Advice is just a phone call away.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Five times the hugging for you. Stories like this make me soooo... sad and angry at the same time. I had my own issues with an abusive, alcoholic stepfather, but thankfully I was old enough at the time to stand up to him (it was a defining moment in my life that I hate yet am also greatful for). I'm sending every positive vibe I can muster in your direction today!

    and some more hugs for good measure...

    Thank god for you and your husband! Many kids don't have anyone to care for them when their awful parents crap out! Keep bugging those people to speed up the process as quick as possible- the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Poor little guy, I hope you get him ASAP.

    I'm so sorry you and your family have to go through this, but I'm so grateful that your nephew has you guys! So many kids have no one who is there for them, no one willing to take on the extra work and provide the much-needed love. That poor little boy has to be so scared right now.....you're doing the right thing and I love you that much more for it!

    Hoping the best for you getting your nephew quickly. That is a very confusing situation for a 3 yr old. Good in a way it came to this and it may be a wake up call for your sister. Hope you can help her to help herself and her son to a stabler environment when she is ready. It is awesome that you will be able to provide that for him until then. Best wishes and lots of my best thoughts coming your way.
