Re: I don't know what to do
Sherri, in the USA the State will place a removed child in the custody of a family member first before placing in foster care. This arrangement is cheaper for the State and it is better for the child. But also in the USA the child needs to be neglected or abused in order to be removed. Your mom is meeting your neice's needs so she would not be removed in the USA. If your sister does move out, however, this could all change. Do you get to spend time with your neice? Thank goodness for your mother.
