Gladys left the girls and I about 1 and 1/2 years ago and moved in with a man she had been seeing. After about 3 months of separation she came to see the girls, who are now 3 years and 6 years old. She calls periodically and gets the girls here and there, but last week she came to get them for the weekend, packed up and took the girls.
I'm not sure where they are. My mother used someone's cell phone and she did answer that, but when my mom called her by name, she stated "no speakie English." My mom knew it was her, because when she first answered, Gladys was saying "Manna-Manna don't do that." Well, my daughter's name is Samantha and only my mom and Gladys call her that. My mom told her she knew it was her and she repeated "no speakie English," so my mother hung up. We never filed for divorce custody or separation.
What can I do to get my girls back?
