My sister has been a drug addict for the past ten years. She unfortunately has fallen pregnant for the second time and miraculously hasn't lost her baby yet considering the amounts of drugs she's taking. She's completely unfit for pregnancy and I fear the worse if her daughter actually makes it through birth. Her chemical imbalance caused from drug abuse cause her to be extremely irrational and aggressive. She is an active drug addict with a record if that is any help. Just last year she was incarcerated for breaking and entering and attempting to deal to an undercover cop. Is it possible to get the authorities to take custody from her once the baby is born? What actions would I need to perform? Is there any way I could have custody over her baby until an adoptive family is found?
