Legal Question

Asked on: 6/23/12, 5:14 am

i have been raising my grandson since he was born. My daughter passed away giving birth to him. he was taken away from me when he was 3 yrs old by CHIPS in Dakota County, Mn. The father has given up all his parental rights. I have done everything Chips recommended and then some. They still have not given him back to me. He is now 5 yrs. old. He has an older brother which is 7 now. Yes, my daughter is the mother of both. My question is..Why did Chips say i had no rights because i didn't have legal custody of my grandson? Shouldn't he have come to me "by rights" after he gave up his parental rights? I love my grandsons so very much. They are all i have left of my precious daughter. I was also told that Chips had no right to even take him the way they did. I was also told that my grandson was adopted. Shouldn't they have told me what the hell was going on with my grandson? I have many other things to tell you about this case, but i want to talk to someone. Please help me. I have tried everything possible. I will never give up trying to get my grandson.
