My 16-month old is still in my bed

Okay...I know some people say letting your child is wrong and inhumane and that co-sleeping is okay and as long as they are sleeping, it should be fine. Well, I do not think that letting your child cry it out (with provisions) is inhumane but I just cannot do it. I have tried and I have a hard time with it. I know she is not in pain but more pissed but I just can only do it for a few minutes. She falls asleep on me for naps and bedtime and then I transport her to her crib (which is in my room) where she will sleep on average 2-3 hours before waking up, crying and then coming into my bed for the night. My mom watches my girls during the day, puts her down awake, she might cry for a minute or not at all and then passes out. Now, if her and I were both getting sufficient sleep, then I would probably not care about her being in my bed but we are not. I feel like I need to give her the gift of sleep, me the gift of sleep and not have to literally inch my way out of bed to crawl to the door just to try and get stuff done in my house, which almost never happens because she wakes up. She is clingy anyways and I am having a hard time emotionally with all of this. We want to move her to my other daughter's room who is 4 so they can share and hopefully my husband and I can actually sleep in the same bed together instead of him on the couch. I don't want to post this on my personal Facebook page because I do not like everyone knowing my business. I need some guidance and hope to get some helpful feedback from you gals. TIA

Sorry...my first line should read "Okay...I know some people say letting your child cry it out is wrong and inhumane and that co-sleeping is okay and as long as they are sleeping, it should be fine." But I could not edit it.
