So I am not a mom and will never biologically be a mother. I have never liked kids, in fact I recently just stopped calling her it. So long story short the mother and I have been really good friends for almost a year. Mother is in and out of psych wards, let say she's in 40% of the year. Well, I was arms length with the child until bio moms last overdose. During this hospital visit while she was drugged up she voiced that she only wanted to be half a parent. The father is a very good active parent knows a lot about the kid. Bio mom only wants to be around for when she's older and make-up boy's ect. After that I took on a much bigger role as a female role model then picking her up from daycare. I know dad is leaving the mother at some point because she is not getting better and the child is getting older and learning way too much about mom's illness. So I became a full time "mom" figure to this child, I moved in a few months ago because mom needed full time care, she has my heart the people at her school and day care think I am her bio mom, mom doesn't care I do things with the child, I have corrected and made aware we are not related at all. So I decided to visit a friend who is having a baby in November. I am struggling on what to do about the child in the entire situation.
