I am a mother of two boys that are in the guardianship of my older sister. My boyfriend and I (the biological father) were having trouble in our relationship about a year and a half ago and I decided to leave, we both decided to assign her guardian while we figured out living situations and custody. The children had been with her for about four months when me and the father reconciled and decided it was better for everyone to be together as a family and work out any problems we had. We got an apartment maybe five miles from my sisters home and asked her to allow us to have the kids over for a visit she protested saying that it is to confusing for them and did not think it was a good idea. We did not fight with her we just asked what she thought was best and she allowed us to see the kids for three hours a day on two seperate days in her home under her watch. It has now been almost a year and a half since being placed in her care and she is encouraging them to call her mom and her husband dad, I tried to correct this and she exploded on me and said i should respect the childrens right to call her mom. I think things have really gotten out of hand and it is affecting my children and i dont know what to do because we cant afford a lawyer and she will not give me my kids back. This whole thing is having an enormous effect on us emotionally and I fear she will never let them come home.
