    What about the grandparents? Why are your parents taking the child?

    No. She is not in school. Because of a stroke she had as a toddler she canít learn to read or write. She is 18 as of 2 weeks ago but has the capacity of someone who is most likely 12. She is going on disability. Her mom just lets her do as she pleases because she believes letting kids do what they want is love. My step sister hates rules which is why she ran away from home at 18 and got pregnant with her son 6 months later. ( he is almost the same age as my son and her youngest is 15 months old) My step sister has 6 kids 3 under the age of 5. And 6 kids with 3 different guys.

    I was only referring to your side of the family.I couldn't understand why they would go to a great grandparent.

    Grandma is my step sister who has 6 kids of her own and CAS said she has reached her level of incompetence, so no . And none of my step dadís other kids are willing to take him. That leaves them and me and my husband.

    Thanks. It is daunting for sure. I never expected to raise another child in my 50ís for sure. As I am sure my mom didnít at 72. But we all want to save him from a life of extremely limited education and welfare future and teenage dad hood which is what he would be doomed to.
