I'm pregnant with my second child. I also have a 20mth old son from a previous relationship. My bf has a 2yr old daughter from a previous relationship. Miss 2 lives with BFs parents because her mother is somewhat psychotic. DHS thinks also for a multitude of stupid reasons that BF is unable to care for his daughter. He was going to hand his daughter over to his parents because he thought that was the best thing to do for his daughter. We have recently been given a nother option, to go shared custody with his parents. His parents think this is a bad idea though. The original idea was to give them custody until we're living in a bigger place and have moved closer to where his parents live. However we havecome to realise that his parents are going to fight us to get her back, even if she was 15. We have decided to go for the shared custody, but this could mean that 2yrs worth of fighting starts all over again. My family thinks im both crazy and a hero. Does anyone else have any ideas abouthow to handle the parents? or DHS? or wwhether we're crazy for stirring things up just as they were about to finish?
