My husband and I get his son every Sunday evening-Wednesday evening. Every Sunday my SS seems to have marks on him (I have been documenting since November.) For awhile after calling the BM out on it, the marks stopped and my SS is too little to tell us what happens (he's only 1 right now.) but now it seems to be getting worse. 3 Sundays ago, my SS came to us with a red and swollen eyebrow, we asked BM and she said he ran into a wall. 2 Sundays ago, my SS came to us with SEVERE diaper rash and BM said she hadnt noticed it until she gave him a bath that day and he screamed. Last Sunday, my SS came to us with scratches by both eyes, a scratch on the cheek, bruises up his leg leg on his shin, and a bite mark on his upper arm. BM claims she never noticed a bite mark..the bite marks seem to be happening almost every week now, and BM does have a 4 yr old whom doesn't belong to my husband. CPS has been contacted almost every week now from us, but they believe it is more a supervison problem than anything else.. We're currently saving to go to court for full custody but my mother in law says all we can keep doing now is keep documenting until she feels she cant defend herself against all the proof in court...any advice would be helpful on dealing with this

We've been reporting to CPS for the past few months. They said its more a supervision issue and can't do anything unless the BM herself is causing the harm
