My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Florida
A friend of mine in southern Florida deals with an alcoholic mother. She ran away and went to a friend's house becuase she could not take it any more and called the police. The police sent her back and her mother acted as if she missed her but then cursed her out in the police station. When the police officer came in, the mother made it seem like it was my friend's fault. Her mother is a nurse and gets completely wasted almost every night, she nights that she isn't wasted, she is just drunk.
She yells at her every night and accuses her of stealing things she hasn't stolen ( ciggerettes, alcohol, etc. ). I live in Pennsylvania but when I stayed with them a few days, I have been a witness to this. When I was with them she had come to the hotel room after bar hopping and she ( friend's mother ) was ready to strike her ( my friend) becuase her mother accused me of being of a cult and that I was going to take her away but she defended me. Her mother gets paranoid when drunk and blacks out.
She hasn't even taken my friend to a doctor in her LIFE to get vaccines! My friend twisted her knee and her mom STILL wouldnt take her to the hodpital but, she pays $1000 dentures for HERSELF ( the mother ). She doesn't send her to public school either, but has her doing Florida virtual.
I want to help her, I can't afford a lawyer yet but I am saving up my money. I want to get her out of her house and adopt her or atleast have her live with me, I'm scared for her life. Her mother also drives drunk and takes care of her patients while intoxicated. I am not even sure if I have this in the right topic but please tell me what I can do.
