I usually just ask to see her for the weekend. her real mother was killed and she lives with her father. his wife has 4 other kids but only has custody of 1. I do not feel I should have to take her kids with me I want to spend time with my granddaughter. I have an appointment to visit with a lawyer next but wanting an idea of what I may be told
I am worried that she will prevent me from seeing molly just to visit even. I hate making waves but since my daughter was killed I bonded strongly with my only grandchild because she is the only one I will ever have since my daughter was an only child
