The answer would be that she smokes marijuana and at one time was using meth in Missouri. She will be smoking marijuana there as I believe it is legal. She lost her first son for moving around a lot. Now her second son has been moved more than his share. If you consider that good or bad, I don't know. She loves him, but she is also very agree with him at times. He's just a 10 year old boy.
I guess that I want to assure if the state becomes involved in this her situation for any reason, I need to know what I can do to have my grandson live with us, and not go to the state. I live in SD, and am unable to find anything out. I thought of calling the state to check on him but haven't done that. Do you have any suggestions at all?
