On Saturday my mom and Allen go to court to see if they can be given fostership and potential legal custody of my brother's three current children. I'm sure if it was possible my bro would give over the fourth "on the way" child but that might just be pushing it.

Part of me is glad the kiddos will be out of the traditional system. A HUGE part of me is glad. Another tinier part of me resents the fact that whenever I have kids my mom sure as shit isn't even going to be able to babysit for an hour or two let alone just take the kids. Then ..well there's the tinier part still that is thinking, "NOOO MOM NOOOOOOO! RUN! RUN NOW! Run while you can still get away with not raising Jeff's kids for the next 18 years!"..

I mean, sure Jeff is joining/has joined the Army but really I just don't see my brother getting those kids back any time soon. Oh well. My mom desperately wants the babies out of the system of foster parents who keep trying to push to adopt the kids separately and so she'll fight tooth and nail for this. I wish them luck but man alive I just don't see any of this going well

Four very long years of suck including child molestation by a foster parent, burns by another, a skin infection common to third world countries covered in garbage from another who didn't bath the kids and social workers who cut off visits when my brother or his now wife say things like, "If I think he's done something wrong, I'll tell him. Not you"

Oh Nebraska

Would you and will be able to adopt any? It might help your mom out.

No and my brother has no intention of letting adoption be discussed. He just wants my mom to have legal custody while he retains all parental rights because then he doesn't have to do anything!

Honestly as much as I love my nieces and nephews I wouldn't adopt them even if I could. Just because my brother CAN impregnate someone doesn't mean he needs to continue to do so and every time someone takes those kids he just makes more
