I have custody of 2 grandchildren. Daughter recovering addict. She had 3rd baby while in rehab(daughter continued to do crack while pregnant until judge threw her in jail) . I have refused to show any attention to baby for fear of getting attached and raising another child. Baby father just got out of prison has long criminal history. Daughter moves in with him and wants her girls to be able to spend time with "new" family. I had previously told her girls could not be around boyfriend and she had to choose between him & girls. Husband says stick to what I said. He doesn't want girls around my daughter and told me he will leave me if I raise anymore of her children. Other family members say let her have limited visitation as a reward for staying clean. If her & boyfriend continue to stay clean increase visitation. I don;t know what to do. Also, as baby gets older and starts to realize things, how do I treat her different? She's still my granddaughter and it's not her fault that her life is screwed up. Any advice? I am torn and don;t know what is the right thing.

Hello... I'm new to the group. I currently have temporary custody of my youngest daughters 4 children due to her & her husband abusing drugs. I did everything I could for about 2 years trying to convince them to seek help. Finally I decided it was time to make the hardest decision I've ever made in my life. Chose the safety & well being of my grandchildren or continuing to try & save my daughter....
