Grandparents and children are both in Alabama, right now.
Parents are still married, but have history of drug use and fighting. Have moved from home to home with relatives and friends for the past couple of months.
We, the grandparents, had the children this past weekend for the first time in two months. We took them back to their parents in Sheffield after their time with us. We just found out tonight that our granddaughter has been late to school the past three days and now the parents have been "evicted" from a relatives house for fighting amongst themselves and have taken the kids with them. Our granddaughter is 5 years old, and the twin boys are 2 years old. Our granddaughter is very emotional and we want her and the boys out of that dangerous situation before one of them get hurt. Please let us know if there is ANYTHING we can do to get them out of there. We do not know where they are now!
Thanks. That helps. If I have any other questions I'll be sure to ask for you again.
