For all intents and purposes, we will call my boyfriend's son my stepson to make it easier. SO... Bio Mom has full custody and they're in the process of divorcing now, all that's left is the court date before a judge to finalize it. I started dating my boyfriend right before Christmas and we told her about us at the beginning of March. She still holds a candle for my boyfriend but I think she sees me as a free babysitter. She gave up custody of their 2y/o son to my boyfriend for the summer (literally, all summer) and I'm watching him while he works. She recently got my stepson back for a weeklong visit and his skin (he has eczema) came back literally falling apart. I mean scratched open (his nails had not been cut), red patches everywhere, flaky, dry... I mean I cried when I saw it. This happens every time that she has a visit with him or when my boyfriend gets him for the weekend. She neglects to put his ointment or lotion on him. Can I call CPS and anonymously report her? It's gotten to the point that it is complete neglect.
