My husband and I had custody of our two grandboys for 26 months the mother up and decided one day being a mother wasn't for her and abandoned the children with my husband and I we had our final court date in October and the dad was awarded the boys this has been so very hard on my husband and I as well as the boys. The oldest whom I might add was 10 weeks premature and had open heart surgery at four months he and his brother are in an abusive home our hands are very much tied it sickens me to know that you can have as much justice as you can afford we are not angry nor bitter in the judges decision in placing the boys with the dad because we know he had to follow the law.. As for today we have been awarded grandparents rights we get the boys once a month mom is still not in the picture and dad has reopened the whole case back up so we will be going back to court soon dads prayer is to get us out of the boys life and our prayer is for god to see us through this test and give us the courage strength and wisdom to get us to our testimony and that God's will to be done at dads so these children can come back home for this is the only home they've known and that God keeps these boys safe, keeps them sweet and that the boys say their prayers we also pray for them to be placed back with us so we can help with their lessons and teach them about god's word and his unconditional love .. Any prayers that you could send would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks for listening!!

It goes unsaid that you're on my prayer list ;-)

Their mother is our daughter. There is proven evidence of the abuse that has been brought to the courts attention.

Well, if they are your grandkids, is their mother your daughter, or their father your son? If it is your daughter that dumped them on you, have her indicate that she wishes you to remain involved. If it is your son, who now has custody, is there no way to simply communicate?

Its complicated. You do have grandparents rights, it seems, in your area, so use that to your advantage, and fight for those rights. What gives you the impression that there is an abusive situation in their home? If there is proof, call child services, and get a case opened. If not, if it is just your assumptions based on what the children have told you, then attempt to confirm or deny the allegations.

Ultimately, it is best if the adults in a child's life can all get along. Good luck.
