If DHHS is so worried about my kids then why....

would they leave a note on my dorr asking me to call them ASAP then take forever to get back in contact with us.

Seriously if I knew my kids were in danger somwhere, id be calling the police for immediate check on their welfare.

I wouldnt wait the damn weekend to then find out the children were harmed, how dumb is that?

Are they really concerned? Or are they just scopin things out?

  • If you weren't home what did you want them to do? I'm sure they're just investigating a claim against you, they'll be back.

  • it means someone put in a complaint against you and DHHS is investigating. Be prepared to have them interview your kids at their school without your knowledge or permission. Not trying to stress you out more, but be prepared to be interviewed yourself, also. They don't have to give you any notice. They just show up.

  • I've never heard of them leaving a note on the door before. I have a feeling that somebody filed a report, why else would they be there? It must not be too serious though. Maybe it's about a neighbor or something.

  • Is your child in a county or state program that is designed for premee's; special needs; at risk children? Some of these programs involve home visits...
