I hate to say this but it’s true. My sister had a baby 6 months ago and it his her first baby. She was totally unprepared for motherhood, she doesn’t know who the dad is, we had to force her to go to dr appointments, everything. Well now that the baby is born, all my sister wants to do is party. She’s constantly leaving the baby with whoever, comes home wasted or not at all. Every time I go over there I end up changing her baby’s diaper and other parenting duties. I have four kids but my fiancée and I do well financially and could afford a fifth, but I want to knock some sense into my sister before I go the route of adopting her baby. Totally at a loss! Any advice?

Arent you in love with someone else and maybe leaving your fiancé? I wouldn’t rush into adopting someone else’s child when you don’t have your own shit together 🙄

Considering that you mentioned in another post that you are thinking of leaving your fiance it’s probably not a good time to bring another child into the mix. You don’t know how your living situation is going to change in the near future. Are there any community resources that could be activated to provide training and support to your sister, or to intervene if the child’s safety is at risk? That would probably be a better option right now.

My advice is to mind ya business.

It is not a simple matter to just ‘adopt’ someone else’s baby unless she agrees to it because you think she’s unfit. Speak to a qualified attorney and be prepared to spend many thousands as well as jump through a lot of legal hoops.
Nothing you say is going to suddenly ‘knock some sense’ into your sister.
Is she an addict? Is she endangering the baby?

Good idea steal the baby and then leave your Fiance for another man

I think your hearts in the right place and I definitely think you should call CPS but you are not in a place to adopt a baby

I think if the baby’s safety is actually in danger, that trumps everything else that may be going on (I haven’t read any of your other posts.) if she is really endangering the baby, not feeding her, etc, you need to call cps. I know that seems harsh, but that’s really the only thing you can do. I don’t think talking to her would really help. People are very defensive when their parenting skills are questioned (understandably so.) Cps would likely let you or another family member have temporary custody at that point.
If it’s just a situation where she’s just not as hands on or attentive as you think you should be, that’s probably a mind your own business scenario.

Didn’t you start a post being upset that your Mother-In-Law is interfering with how you raise your kids? I’m not meaning to bring that up to be harsh but just to say that no one likes to be told how to raise their kids, as you pointed out yourself. Unless her child is in any danger be very careful with how you approach this. Suggesting to adopt her baby is not the way to go, neither is it supportive to your sister. Is it just you who is concerned? Have you spoken to another trusted family member about this, like your parents? What do they suggest?

I think your Mother-In-Law should just take all 5 kids so sister can go party and you can run off into fantasy land with your new man. Gawd. I hope this is all fake and not truly the flaming train of bad life choices you’ve been describing. All those poor kids 😕
