TODAY THEY ARE STAFFING MYCASE

I HAVE BEEN CLEAN OFF OF DRUGS FOR OVER 6 YEARS AND THE REASON MY BABY HAD PNEMONIA IS BECAUSE I WAS TREP B POSITIVE SO NO THERE IS NO MORE TO MY STORY. I DID NOT DO DRUGS WITH MY BABY HE WAS NEGATIVE IWAS POSITVE BECAUSE I TOOK ZANTAC FOR HEARTBURN. ANYWAY YESTERDAY DCF DID THEIR HOME INTERVIEW AND SEEN I HAVE A NICE HOME AND EVERYTHING POSSIBLE BABY COULD NEED. I FOUND OUT TODAY THE DIVERSION PAPERS I SIGNED IS FOR A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM AND TODAY THEY ARE STAFFING MY CASE. DOES ANYONE THINK THEY WILL TAKE IT FURTHER THEN THE DIVERSION PROGRAM OR WILL THEY TRY TO STOP ME FRO BRINGING MY BABY HOME MONDAY.

  • As you have been counseled time and time again, you absolutely MUST ask THEM these questions. I have no idea how your CPS handles these cases at all

  • I think most of us know the issue. The question you've never answered though is whether or not you now have a negative drug test for you.....that's important.

  • I Googled it and, apparently, "staffing" means that your caseworker meets with several other members of the CPS staff to determine whether a case should continue for investigation or be closed.

    Your positive drug test is what is likely causing their concern.
