Why don't SM have any rights????
      06/07/05 05:34 PM

There are a lot of new folks here and you probably don't know all that's happened. I'll give you a rundown. Hubby and I were in the process of pursuing custody, but he changed his mind after BM threw herself a pity party. I have a file cabinet full of things that could be used against her in court. Police reports, CPS reports, school reports, signed statements from HER parents about neglect, and the list goes on and on.

I have been trying to step back and accept my hubby's decision not to pursue custody, but it's not working so well. These girls are being neglected. Maybe not beaten, but definately neglected. Why in the hell can I not do something about it?????

Yes. I am attached to them. Yes. I do consider them my own. Maybe I am overstepping the line, but who cares? I love them and can provide a better home. At this point, I think foster care would be a better situation then the one they currently live in.

Okay, so I have issues. There are far more worse "issues" than loving children that I have been raising since they were both in diapers. Hubby wants me to back off. I wouldn't have to "back off" if BOTH of them hadn't placed me in the position to act like I was their mother.

I have a bond with the girls. I feel like I should be able to initiate custody without his signature on the dotted line.

Guess it's obvious that I'm a little stressed right now. Sorry you had to listen to it, but I feel so much better...
