  • why would 2 kids not want to be with you so much they cut their wrists? I would say that CPS may look into this now that this is the 2nd child calling on you.

    Be prepared to be investigated if they put the 2 together/

  • Why would both sisters do that? CPS is going to want to find the answer to that question.

  • kids don't just dut their wrists because they don't want to live by your rules...
    usually there is more to it than that...
    has she gotten any counseling or anything?
    also, her older siste did the same thing? What happened with that situation? Did she get some couseling to help her learn to cope in better ways and to work through her issues?

  • You told the state to just take her?

    Stellar parenting there

  • It would surprise me if CPS went after your daughter unless something really bad came out of their investigation, but don't hold it against the agency if they look very closely to find out what's going on that would make two sisters call you in. As uncomfortable as it might be, that's what CPS is there for. If the claims are unfounded, you'll get a letter stating that the case has been closed.

  • ....... So the state kept the first one as you asked? Maybe the current one wants the same.
