Thanks girls and Lisa I have been the primary caretaker for these boys for 6 years. My DH got full custody of them 3 days after we were married. Their mom has disappeared for 2 18 month streaches in that time. So she has been gone for 3 of the last 6 years. And we always have these struggles when she comes back. the youngest always tests his limits and acts up because he thinks it's going to make us send him to live with her. But in our opinion she is in NO condition to take care of them. She is still on a fairly high does of Methadone and her boyfriend takes prescrption painkillers for the same back problem that I deal with without the pain killers. (he was a drug addict too)

It's just a really difficult situation.
