What would you do if: you were 100% positive someone was using prescription pills, ecstasy, weed, has history of using crystal meth, coke, and several other things, and there is a newborn and a 6 year old in the home? There are reports from "friends" who are seeing harder drug use.
This same person has left her first child with the grandparents, her second put up for adoption because the baby was born addicted to crystal meth.
This person was recorded smoking weed on camera while pregnant with the child she has now, and popping pills.
I ask because it involves my stepsons (for lack of a better word) mother. She is threatening to come get him from his grandparents (we aren't in a stable enough home to have him) and to disappear with him. My stepsons gramma and I have been talking and we are highly concerned for my stepson. And his little newborn brother. We are having a hard time on deciding what to do because we are almost positive the new one was born addicted to something. The 6 year old is her boyfriends son.
Please don't be rude. We don't want anything bad to happen to these kids, but cannot let it sit on our consciences. She doesn't want to change, and doesn't want to get off of drugs. And we really don't want her to get ahold of stepson because we will never see him again.

That's what we're leaning towards. I hate the situation because itd be the end of me if someone called CPS on me. But I would NEVER do any of that to put my baby in that situation. I wouldn't do it even if I didn't have my daughter. I just want people's opinions.
Her own mom wants to call CPS on her. It's also hard because when it does come down to custody, between my SO and stepsons grandparents, who are working together, I don't want it to seem like someone is trying to get rid of her. We are genuinely concerned for the children involved. And the grandparents have already said they won't let the newborn go to foster care. As for her boyfriends kid, who knows what will happen to him and that is sad.
