I am trying to keep my nearly 4 year old safe with us. My daughter is not a good mother and she let him go to us when he was 7 months old. Now, 3.5 years later, she suddenly files for custody. She has a long history with drug addiction and alcoholism. Though she claims to be clean and sober, her life style has not changed. When I agreed to take this boy, I agreed to provide for him and protect him, even from his own mother.
