Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
The test for any issue about parenting orders is what is in the best interests of the child, not what your mother wants. So if it is in the best interests of the child to return to you, then that is what should happen. Grandparents do not have the same rights as parents, so if she continues to refuse then you can pick up your son. This may then go to the Family Court but if all your family support you, and the child is better off with you then that is where he will stay.
