My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Pennsylvania
Her mother receives $800.00 a month in child support plus she also works as a Therapeutic Staff Support worker and refuses to wash and comb my step-daughter's hair, she sent her to school with shoes that gave her corns on her toes, my husband and I immediately replaced the shoes, she refuses to give my step-daughter her prescribed medication for constipation which causes my step-daughter to bleed every time she has to move her bowels, my step-daughter also get abdominal pains due to not passing her bowels which the meds is suppose to help her with. Her mother refuses to get a separate bed for my step daughter in her junior size one bedroom apartment, consequently, she's had her sleeping in the same bed for 9 years to date even though she's promiscuous and the court ordered her to get a separate bed after she lied about it but they made no actions to enforce it. (My step-daughter told the judge she sleeps with her mother when asked) My step-daughter has admitted that her mother has made her sleep on the living room floor sometimes when her mother had male company. My step daughter showed signs of sexual abused by repeatedly trying to expose herself to her father and another time she touched him on the crouch after he had kissed her on the forehead. My step-daughter's maternal grandmother takes her to all of the doctors appointments, school, pick up report cards... Since my step-daughter was 2 years old up until now, 32 dr visits, her mother has only taken her to one and she was 6 years old when she did that. Her grandmother had taken her 14 times and her father took her the rest and that's because that was all she would allow him to take her through the years of trying to have a cordial relationship with her for their daughter.
