Thank you for your question ad thank you most kindly for requesting me to assist you further.That really does not help her. She can bring up where the child could live, why such an atmosphere would be in the best interest, and how it would benefit the child, but it really benefits you more than her. All that you suggested would be great if you yourselves would file for guardianship, claim that both parents are unfit, and that you are able to care for the child yourself. That is definitely an another option to consider if you decide to go that route. I agree that pointing out a more favorable place to raise the child would help, as would the less cost and concern with safety, but that is really more of your own benefit as a potential surrogate guardian.Hope that helps.
