Sadly, there are times when biological mothers and fathers are not the best parents for their children. Psychological problems, criminal activity, or drug or alcohol addiction impairs their ability to provide basic care or make appropriate decisions regarding their children. In many cases, family members or friends step in to protect children through guardianships, including those that lead to adoptions.
Grandparents and other close relatives want to take immediate action when mothers and fathers are failing in their obligations to care for their children.
