Imagine adopting your sister's children after she willingly gives them up, only for her to return five years later and demand them back! That's the situation one woman found herself in when her sister, Annie, moved back home after losing her job. Annie had given up her daughters, Sophie and Laura, due to postpartum depression and her inability to care for them. Now, she's insisting on having custody of the girls, even though her sister and brother-in-law have legally adopted them and raised them as their own. 😳👩‍👧‍👧

Family Torn Apart: Whose Side Are You On? 😔

This family is at a breaking point as the sister refuses to give in to Annie's demands for custody. The sister argues that she and her husband are the girls' legal parents, and that uprooting them would be detrimental to all six kids in their family. Meanwhile, Annie and their parents insist that she deserves a chance to bond with her biological daughters, and that the girls could benefit from a smaller household. With emotions running high and no resolution in sight, this family feud has everyone questioning who is in the right. 💔😢

Commenter supports OP's decision to keep custody of her kids.
