I fear for her safety and peace of mind. I feel that her household environment is not a healthy one due to her parents disrespect and abuse towards each other. I would not want my goddaughter to go into the foster system, I would want her to go directly to me. What is the best way to go about this?
You would need consent of the parents. There's a possibility she would be placed with you instead of going to foster care. If it's than unsafe and unhealthy, you should be reporting it. You could just ask them to give you custody.
