The children spent months in foster care in Hampshire after the bizarre decision was made.
The woman - who herself moved from Hampshire to Yorkshire - began a nine-month legal battle with Hampshire Social Services to overturn their decision.
She has now won custody of the two children.
Initially she was told the youngsters 'couldn't adapt to a change in area and culture' and could become isolated because of their 'southern accents.'
The outraged auntie said the children 'had a tough time at home' and that she wanted to show them 'a real family life'.
Her solicitor, Huddersfield-based Nigel Priestley said: 'It was one of the most bizarre social services decisions I have come across. The aunt has provided a great home and they will adapt as children do.'
What do you think? Maddest social services decision ever, or can you see that the children could have had problems adjusting?
