I am 28 married and have 4 happy healthy children. My problem is i want to help a young mum who is 8 months pregnant with her third child. The first 2 were taken by DOCS because of her drug use, and involvement with her partner, who has a criminal record and also a drug user. She has asked me if she can come stay with us to sort herself out. She hasn't taken drugs in 2 months and has the urine tests to prove it and she wants to leave the partner to come stay with us. What I need to know is what steps we have to take for her to be able to keep this child, and also what will I have to go through with DOCS if she is staying with me. Surely they will want to interview us and check things out. Is it worth the trouble to help or should I just stay out of it and hope she does things herself. I dont want to put my children in harms way but I feel i should help as she's asked me for it.
