my youngest daughter brought her to me when she was 2 months old, and said she made a mistake, I did what I could to help my daughter.. but the revolving door had to stop, as she would not come over to see the baby, she would come over to get money or need a place to sleep and then steal from me, the second Christmas she actually stoled her daughters Christmas presents from my house to give to a so called friend, she is not responsible, she married a drug addict, in and out of jail, she is constantly calling the cops on her husband for beating her up, she now has a son that is 5 and has not even been in school yet.. he will be 6 in November and should be going into the 1st grade, he has not done pre-k or kindergarten, I have invited her to Alyssas, birthday parties, and at the last minute she thinks we should drop everything and run and pick her up. most of the time its a good 45 minutes away. and when we tell her that its the birthday DAY.. then she gets ticked although she knows when her daughters birthday is, my daughter constantly post, she does not have a place to stay and no one will help, she says she has to beg for food on the streets althought she gets 497 in foodstamps.. that she sells... for cash,, this is the second time we have went to court as I get blamed for everything, she owes over 15,000 in child support, she does not want to work, she bums off of everyone she can, she is split up with her husband and haning with a new man, my son let her move in for a while but the drugs, and coming home high,, he made her leave, as he has his own children and family to make sure are taken care of, my daughter told me she has gone to Childrens Home Society and they are going to help her get my granddaughter back, Alyssa knows that my daughter is her mother, but, she also know a realy mother takes care of their children. my daughter has to come up by july 31st 590.00 or she will be going to jail, and I am getting blamed for it, she believes that if for some reason she can get Alyssa back that she will not have to pay and will avoid jail time, I actually went thru a attorney back in 2005 and it is court ordered that I have legal guardian ship over Alyssa, but her threats scare me, I know my grandaughter will be turning 9 end of this month.. and in the state of Florida that they have to be 13 to say who they want to live with, my granddaughter will be tramatized. if she is taken from a secure home, clothes to wear, and not worry about where her next meal will come from, my biggest worry is the druggies that my daugheter associates with, would hurt her, or she would be .... don't even want to think about it. she has never known fear. and I just need some advice.. my daughter wont work, she has no permanent housing, and lives wherever she can lay her head.. but she told me that the state of florida will do anything they can to reunite the child with the mother.. how long will the courts give her to get her act together she said she has applied for section 8? I don't even know what that is... any help.. thanks so much for your response. and sorry so long..

She can try but it will go through the court and she would have to have proof you were not taking care of the child as well. She is upset because she has been called on her support payments being behind. If you are worried about this report it to the court that she is threatening to take back her daughter. Why are you raising your grandchild?
