– from Jodi G. in Menomonee Falls, WI
I am 19 and I have a 4 year old son. I had him when I was a minor, and we both lived with my grandmother after he was born. We lived with her until I turned 18. After that, we moved in with my boyfriend for a few months. That didn’t work out, so we moved in with a friend. Since then, me and my son have been staying with different friends of mine until I get can get us a place, and find a good job to support us. My grandmother has been helping us out with cash, but now she says I should just bring my son to live with her until I get on my feet. She thinks its my fault that we are in this position, and that I should just hand over my son. Now, she is taking me to court for custody. Can she really take my son from me?
