Ray here to help you tonight.Welcome to JA.
As the child's grandmother there is nothing that prohibits you from taking the child out of state on a trip.As long as you meet the child's needs--food, clothing, shelter here it is perfectly fine.It looks like hte child has been abandoned to your care.At some point you may decide to file for legal custody of the child.That way you control if the mother or father if they reappear can visit or have involvement.But there is no problem here with you takign the child for a visit out of state with your sisiter.You are acting in the hcild's best interests and those of the mother.
