So the long and short of it is, this is the 3ed time we have had the kids, the first time my son was 16 and it was just the two boys we had them for two weeks, we allowed the parents to come visit, being the person I am I let them stay the night (first mistake) but was wise enough to live the baby monitor in their room and have the kids sleep in the living room near our bedroom, in the middle of the night the mom trys talking my brother in to taking the kids out of the house in the middle of the night, well I came out of the room and just pretended to be checking on the kids (did not want them to know about the monitor) well it got such in an up roar that my brother started totally freaking out talking about killing himself this went on for 5 hr, I called my crazy mom and she talked him down while I kept the mother from taking the kids. the sad part besides that the kids had to see all this is my son who was 16 had just decided to dedicate his life to god and got baptized that day, what a way to ruin a beautiful day for him, my husband and I after that night said we just could not handle this with our son at this age we had to put him first, it was a very hard decision they stayed with family they went to her aunts house. The 2ed time was when the baby girl was born it was a voluntary placement (2ed mistake) the baby was born dirty and was in NICU for a week so I went and picked them up when she was 14 days old, my brother went to jail and the mom went into la la land after having them for 5 months she decides she wants to be a mom again and wants a visit and CPS calls me up and tell me I have to let her visit, so they have their visit she brings her mom and her boyfriend who just got out of jail for drug dealing. they follow us home and stake out our house we had to call the police it was another big mess. two weeks later Cps calls and tell us that she now has a job she has had for 1 (one) week and a apt her Aunt got her and she want her kids back, I am like Hell no!!! one week from 6 month, we went to every lawyer beg for pro bono work to help protect these children in Texas at 6 months you can file for custody. There was nothing we could do because it was a voluntary placement. So they had to go back. But don't think just because they were gone I was just going to sit quiet I was up cps butt, with in ONE week they lost contact with the mother and the kids, I found them, the grandmother who was not to be around them at all was babysitting them, I had to tell CPS that, I live 5 hr away. Hum what is wrong with this picture??? 3 months The oldest boy breaks the largest bone in his arm "pushing " a car in the drive way, had to have 5 pins put in it they did not take him to the hospital for 2 days because they did not know it was broke...gggrrrr My brother the whole time is still in jail and says he is going to divorce her, HA they get back together before he even gets out of jail. with in one month they are back in the same place as they were when I went and got the kids!!! all living with the great grandmother and grandmother in a 3 bedroom house. All are drunks and druggies. Well I get a call and guess what my brother wants me to come get the kids again because cps is going to take them away from them and I said NO so they went into the system now they have a lawyer, a CASA worker, therapist, ect! and I am in control and before this is all said and done I still have a few tricks up my sleeves. Oh did I mention that lived in the attic during hurricane IKE????? they live 30 min from Galveston!!!! so these poor kids have been mentally, physically, and other abused!!!! and now you see why one of my causes is make CPS responsible for their actions. Alot of this would not have happened it CPS would have done their job right the first time. oh and the baby is now 2 it has been very heart breaking and draing over the years. So we have had the kids for the past 8 months and they have major "issues" we have weekly visit from therapest, CPS visit, court dates, speach, it has become my full time job. So I don't have much time for myself. But I do miss ya'll and think of ya'll much. I would love for you to drop me a line now and then, I check in once in awhile. Thanks for all the votes and support for my Driving Miss Daisy. that came in 2 place. Sorry I did not get to respond to each and everyone who voted. Love and miss my Fotki "Family"
