  • I am glad that they were able to take care of your kids while you got the help you needed. Sounds like a win-win to me.

  • There's more to your story, they don't just take kids away because you are depressed.

  • DHS will do what ever they want. They wouldnt allow my husbands 3 to come stay with me big the case worker said my house wasnt big enough. Said that they wanted to try and give the kids back to the person they got them from. DHS is full of shit.

    Glad you got your kids back. I dont know how you did it w/o them. Its been a year since you had them.. I would feel like i missed out on them

  • I had two kids at 20. thats bull shit right there. I know a 17 year old with two kids and that girl does just fine. They judge people for the stupidest things. For some reason miss the kid that really do need to be removed from the home.

  • At least you were getting help and you knew you needed help. For the fact of you having depression, it took a long time for the case to close. I went to jail my kids father called dss on me. The solicitor dropped my charges but dss was still around. Once i got a job they left me alone. Never once took my children. It was only a few months they were around.
