Here is the status: 1) she wants her freedom; 2) do not want to give legal guardianship nor custody; 3) I want her to leave them with me because she clearly does not want the responsibility nor does she spend time with them; and she's always yell and scream at them; 3) she wants to get them 1-day a week and keep half the food stamps; 4) she'll pay their day care; 5) she won't be able to provide monthly living expense support. I am not the grandparent but great-aunt to her children.
