They have no idea how to raise our son as we would! They do not appreciate our lifestyle and our style of child rearing, not to mention my mother is not stable enough to look after her own emotional needs, let alone my sons and she would ban Mono from ever seeing him again.
Can't you have that changed?
Don't tell me there is some archaic backward law where you live that says once you pick a guardian for your kid you're stuck with them no matter what.
