Default Guardianship of Grandson

For those of you who were at the Eclipse Rally in Wyo, you may or may not have met our grandson Nate.
We were on our way out to Oregon, to deliver him to his dad, court ordered, yet Nate had never lived with him.
Well, it didn't work out, and Nate has been back with us since end of March.
Our daughter, and his dad, have agreed that staying with us is the best option, and have signed papers saying so.
Jan. 10 we go to court, and fully expect the Judge to agree with our petition to grant us full guardianship.
Hopefully, you all will get to meet him in our Bluebird travels.
It does change our travel plans in the winter a lot, as there is now FIFTH GRADE CLASS to consider!
We would appreciate any and all prayers and good wishes for success.
It is another journey we take in this adventure we call life, full of new and unexpected twists and turns.

Melvin,
As a result of a failed marriage I too went to live with my grandmother at age 10.
Had it not been for my grandmother and her mentoring I’m pretty sure my life would have been very different. Impart your wisdom of life experience and love and you can never go wrong.
Living with her was the best thing that ever happened to me. I’m sure it will be just as important to him.

Does homeschooling count if it's on the road? Good on you.

We became guardians of our niece when she was young. Seeing the judge was easy. Those are not even done in open court here, we went into his chambers and had a chat. Easy peasy. Legal guardianship makes it easy to get the kid on your group health insurance. Good thing, she soon needed her appendix out.
Best of luck, you are doing a good thing.

Melvin, My hat is off to you and your wife. Kids have a tuff enough time as it is, but not having a stable family situation makes it nearly impossible for them. My youngest daughter and SIL have taken in his niece's two kids, both from infancy. I have a few words of description for the niece, but can't say them here or I'd get tossed out. Anyway, the kids are now in the safe hands of my daughter and SIL, who adore them and I can see the kids feel the same way. They even call my daughter and SIL mom and dad and Michele and I grandma and grandpa. At their young age, they already realize how their lives have changed for the better. I can't imagine what their lives would have been like had they stayed with the "egg donor". She isn't worthy of the word mother. I am not saying your situation is as this one I just described and don't know your circumstances. I just know you are doing what is best for your grandson and I wish all of you the best and God Bless You.

Good Job Melvin!
I was concerned about the grandson when we met him in Casper,and its good news to hear hes coming to stay with you.
He will learn a lot from you,i'm very sure of that.

The RIGHT thing to do isn't always the easiest thing to do; but it is the Right thing to do!

From my experience the right thing to do is more often then not the hardest. In these types of situations particularily the reason FOR the problem is because the party(s) at fault took the easy path. If it hasn't happened in your family look to your next door neighbor or across the street . You won't have to look far.
