I am going through a very rough time I dont know what to do anymore. Any Advice?
My daughter sleeps in the room with my mom and I opened the door and my mother was smoking crack with my daughter in the room. Personally I dont care if she smokes crack anymore because for 20 years she has been making excuses ("sometimes, i slip up", or "I'm sorry") so if she wants to kill herself oh well...Im not saying I dont love her but she is dead wrong...she is trying to kill my baby by having her breath in that stuff. I already have a case with ACS because of my grandmother,she was trying to get custody of my baby so she can get some money, which is what she did to me and my brother. I recently found a job but I have no place to stay and my boyfriend recently got kicked out of his apartment, and he has the money for one but he just can't find a suitable one. If he gets the apartment I can stay with him and my mom will NEVER see my baby again. This is her FIRST grandchild and she doesn't even care. That really hurts, she is always letting me down. Im not gonna let my baby down. SHE COULD HAVE AT LEAST PUT MY BABY IN THE ROOM WITH ME OR MY SISTER IM FROM BROOKLYN NEW YORK..IF ANYONE WANTS A FOLLOW UP PUT ME ON THE WATCH LIST OR CONTACT ME BY EMAIL THE LINK IS ON MY ANSWERS! PROFILE. THANKS ONCE AGAIN

We went though something similar with my mother-in-law, finding crack and powder cocaine in her apartment when she was supposed to be babysitting my children. We made the hard decision and got our kids away and did NOT take them back. We have also tried to get her some help, and have dealt with this for 20+ years (as... More

You've had it rough, but you sound like you're doing the best you can. Great job. Remove your baby from your mother. There is a lot of harm that can happen, like you said your baby is breathing in drugs. Seek help from a local churches, and any other organization for low income families. You have access online, start... More

First you need to get you and your baby some where else immediately. Stay out of contact with your mother. You also need to know that there is a God watching out for you and your baby and he loves you very much. Pray to him, ask for guidance. Don't let your baby down.

Have you tried to get into a women's abuse shelter? They might be able to help you. From what you have said, your child is dealing with abuse; technically, you are too.
