We took our grandson who is a guardianship child we didn’t want him going thru system.We already had his older sister for 10yrs.Problem is his biological father has more rights than us ,even though our grandson ended up very sick at 2weeks of age in his &my daughter’s care .We want nothing to 2 do with him because he swapped sex for drugs with my daughter .He get photos & updates .We are kinship carers & have any say over my grandson ,in regards 2 education & access .Parents who s kids taken from them still have lots of input .Yes some can stay off drugs get kids back ,thus is not the case ,we have our grandson till 18 but we have no rights or very little.

  • The system really needs to change to todays unfortunate habits. Drug’s of today have taken over and not just the those that come from the “wrong side” of the tracks. These parents who have fallen victim to the addiction of these destroying drugs never asked for the life they have fallen to, and until they are completely ready and STRONG enough to overcome the EXTREME difficulties it takes to get over these addictions people like yourself should be given so much more than you are. Society needs people like yourself to break these habits that have become apart of our lives today.


  • Wow this is so hard, you are taking on your grand kids because daughter took the wrong path.. I really hope the dad backs off and you get full custody of him to help this little soul stay on the right path. Good luck
