my daughter and granddaughter have lived with me almost all of my granddaughters life,my grandaughter is attached to me to the point that when my daughter did move out i would have to go get my granddaughter at night when i got off work to come stay withme.There hasnt been a day up until now that i havent seen her.Her father has never had a problem with me keeping her until he obtained temporary sole custody because my daughter failed a drug test,but a couple of months back he was charged with drug use he went to some class and that was it.He is using her to try and hurt me and my daughter.I have bought over half her clothes and he called me and said i could meet he at walmart and spent some time with her then when i got there he said she could use some pants so i bought them for her .I then ask him to bring her to my house the following day he said he would try,But he didnt even text me til afternoon and thats was after i had sent him several texts asking if he was coming he said no
