My point is that Nicole KNOWS that Sydney would not be at risk of being on the street, or growing up without a father if she'd simply tell the truth. Nicole's current actions prove that her needs come before Sydney's or anyone else's.

I think it is fairly clear that if Nicole has to chose between Sydney and EJ she would choose Sydney.
Nicole's fight to keep Sydney as her daughter might be selfish but that does not negate her love for that little girl.
Nicole was going to tell everything to EJ after Grace passed away but Stefano warned her that to do so could cost EJ custody of Johnny and Sydney. Sami is still very much in love with Rafe and she made it clear that he is the man she wants to be in her life acting as a father to her children.
Any parent understands that to truly love your child unconditionally you put THEIR needs first - despite how painful that might be for the adult. It has nothing to do with whether Nicole would pick EJ or Sydney, nor how Sami feels about Rafe.
Nicole knows that Sydney would have a good life with two parents that will love her, protect her and provide for her if she were to admit the truth. It's that simple. The ONLY reason she isn't doing that is for her own selfish needs.
She loves Sydney - just not enough to do what's best for her. And that does negate the love she feels for her.
By your own argument EJ doesn't love Johnny or Sydney!
Was EJ putting Johnny's needs first when he sought sole custody in order to punish Sami?
Was EJ putting Johnny's needs first when he had the sleeping child out of bed so that he could give him comfort?
Was EJ putting Sydney's needs first when he tossed her out of the mansion?
I have never said that either EJ or Sami are perfect. No one is. But they ARE Sydney's true parents and given that information both will no doubt love her and protect her, as they have with their other children. Nicole's continued insistence of keeping their daughter from them can't be defended by pointing out the mistakes that either of them have made as parents - because she is proving right now that she is certainly no better. And even if she were, it is never okay to steal someone else's child, regardless of the excuses why.
