A friend of mine came to me last night in tears...she wants her son back!! She had him when she was very young, she ended up signing her son over to her mother under a temporary aadaoption. A year ago her mother came to her and had her sign her son over to her so that her mom had complete medical control...trusting her mom, she signed the papers....Now that she is on her own feet and can care for the both of them she asked her mom for her son back....now if a huge fight and her mom is not sure she can give him over to her....What is my friend to do??

Get a lawyer. If she has been in her childs life ten it might be a fight in court but she did willing give her custody on a temporary basis. If the courts didn't remove custody that does make a diffence.

I agree, get a lawyer. Most have free consultation, so he/she can tell your friend what is possible.
