  • Depends. Why did they take your other kids?

  • What did you do to get your kids taken away in the first place? No offense, but I just hate to think of another child having to live in a bad situation because of selfish adults.

    Not long ago here there were four children taken out of a very horrible situation. Worst part of it was that several years ago that same mother had three other children taken away from the very same horrible conditions. I'm sorry, but some people don't deserve a chance to be a parent.

  • i'm sure CPS knows you're pregnant and is tracking you. If you apply for any welfare service in a new state,they'll check you out and see the removal.

  • Are you still with the same guy that beat you or are you with a guy that beats you?

  • How long ago did cps take your first daughter? Did you contest the issues at all? Removal takes an actual investigation, usually. They typically try to keep the family in tact, give the parents opportunities to improve (at least from what I saw with my BIL's ex). I also know that in my BIL's ex's case the child WAS allowed to stay with willing family (and this was in NC). Are you still with the father?

  • If you are not in an abusive relationship then no I don't think they would even take the child even if you are in NC. Have you attempted to get the first child back?

    I'm not an expert as far as CPS..I did deal with CPS for a similar problem but I never lost custody of my child. I did volunteer to have him stay with my mother for a while, and then that situation fell apart(long story) and I moved in with my now husband...CPS knew all of this and while I had home checks with them and check ups they never attempted to take my son(who was about 1 yr old at the end of it all(CPS involved for about 9 mths). They asked me what I needed in terms of therapy and I told them and they paid for it then closed the case while I was still completing that therapy. But I also Broke up with that guy(obviously).
