You go to the probate court and you fight the Petition for Guardianship based on the fact that you are the parent of the child and that you have the legal right to raise your own child.
If the court does not find you incapable of caring for your child, the judge will deny the petition and you will be able to take custody of your child.
Custody arrangements as between parents no longer exist after the death of one of the parents---and one parent does not have the legal right to grant custody to another person when there is one parent still alive and entitled to custody under the law.
