hi she is staying with us at the moment as social services asked us to look after her, she told her nan and police her mum hit her although the police have found nothing to substantiate this claim. she was with her nan with three weeks but she couldnt cope as our niece took 2 od's and ran away once! our niece is related as her dads brother is my husband, social services asked us to look after her as there was nowhere else for her to go to. she has been with us for a week but my disabled husband is finding it hard to deal with, she is sleeping in our front room as we have no spare bedrooms!
all help gratefully recieved
dad cant look after her as a drug user
Just let me summarise the facts.
The child's mother does not wantthe 13-year-old child back for whatever reason.
The child has been living withyou and you can no longer cope.
The child's natural father is adrug user and is incapable of looking after her.
No one else wants to look afterthe child?
Is that the situation?
yes thats right there is no one else
