So I have a niece who is in her early 20s (my husband and I were widely spaced siblings, so this niece belongs to his eldest brother who is 41 - my husband is 28 the youngest of 4.) anyways she was pregnant the same time I was.

She wasn't able to get any health-care due to her not having a medicaid card and only went to the doctor once, the day she went into labor she found out she was pregnant with twin girls.

Well she apparently has this crazy-grandmother from her mother's side, who during delivery called CPS and complained the father of the baby wasn't really the father. So he couldn't even be around when his daughters were born. Last I heard - her husband and her were staying with my husband's Mother (her paternal grandmother) because they needed help with the twins and were going to move from Texas to Illinois - that is where her father lives (who is the brother of my husband). Because apparently there was so much drama around her Mom's side of the family.

Well we had talked to my husbands parents over the phone today and found out they Maternal Grandmother (in some sort of vendetta or vengeance scheme - because it is said she wants custody of the twin girls) called CPS again on my Niece. Now her husband and her are NOT allowed to be around the newborn twins at all and that it was either foster-care for the babies or that my Mother-In-Law took temporary custody.

So now MIL has custody of the twin girls and is having to take care of them full time, she is a really sweet and awesome lady - I know this is tiring on her. But I can't believe that CPS was called because of the Maternal-Grandmother having some hissy-fit and now the twins are mother-less and father-less. I would think that CPS would have to have an investigation first or something - not just immediately strip the parental rights away - especially with no basis on the allegations made on them.

I don't think anyone where I live would do that to me, but it's pretty scary/messed up to hear about.

UPDATE: Finally got some more information on this situation. My niece's eldest child, a boy from a previous marriage had gotten some bruises on his head/face. She said it was from his biological father - but the Maternal Grandmother (and also my niece's mother) claimed it to be from her new boyfriend. So that is why he was prevented from seeing the twins at birth and only had visitation.

The little boy is with his bio-dad, but apparently he is the abuser, so that is not good.

My Niece was reported to CPS because she was accused of neglect and yelling at the infants (which she did not do and my MIL can vouch for that) she still has full custody but isn't allowed to see them or her son at this moment. Alot could have been solved if she had chosen her children over her new boyfriend but she is standing beside him. So I am not sure what will happen as far as the custody of the children goes as of yet.

Wow! That is scary, unless there was hard evidence as soon as they walked in the house or she knows someone at CPS and pulled strings. That is just sad, really sad!

I am also in shock. Most of the time CPS will not remove a child without reasonable cause. It makes me wonder what that woman said to them.

Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!

I agree. Usually they have to find something pretty alarming to immediately remove like that.
