Hi - I practice in Mississippi, and have been the youth court prosecutor in my county for more than 6 years.
You and your husband will have to file a petition for guardianship over the children in DeSoto County. You'll have to hire an attorney to assist you in this matter as there are no "forms" in Mississippi. However, if the parents are agreeable to all of this, it should not be very expensive.
Once the petition is filed, the parents can sign waivers, agreeing to the guardianship. Then, the judge will enter an order granting you guardianship over the children.
