I appointed guardianship of my children with my mother in September of 2011. I am currently afraid for their well being and would like to relinquish her guardianship and have my children back in my care. It was not court ordered that my children reside with her, I placed them with good intentions, with her. However, there is a petition that I signed that gave her guardianship, at her county courthouse. We live in Illinois. I was at my mother's home for Christmas and I saw how she treated my youngest son, she humiliated him and called him retarded, spanked him and then made him go to bed with out his lunch. All because he peed his pants. I saw the fear and dread in his eyes. All I want to know is how I go about getting my boys back with me.
