I am also raising a granddaughter. We got the call on my eek 60th birthday. She was 2 monts old and my daughter had used her as a shield to keep from being hit by the boyfriend. Our daughter is addicted to pain meds and maybe other drugs. We adopted our daughter at age 3. She had been severely abused and was placed by CPS in Texas with foster parents. She had 6 or 7 foster homes in less that 3 years. She has a bonding issue, understandably. All her relationships have been abusive. She resists help from us. She did sign the baby over to us, saving the state from getting involved. She and her boyfrien say they want her back, BUT they never visit and have no bond with her. Milla calls us mom and dad, which does turn heads often. We are in very good health and have decided to adopt. The state gave us permanent guardianship last year. It is heartbreaking to do this to our daughter, but Milla is the priority now. What is experiences with judicial system in SD if any. Milla is almost 3 years old.
