My son's dad has temporary custody right now. I became addicted to drugs and didn't always follow through with life. At this point in my life I am doing all the right things. I was mandated to complete a program show up for all my appointments and be emotionally regulated. I have been consistent for about 3 months and will return to court in Jan 2009. What are my chances of regaining custody. Just to let you guys know his father has been in prison is also an addict but has been sober about 3 years now and has a terrible cory.

When you go to court in January, then you can show the judge - hey, not only did I do what you asked of me, but I also took the initiative to make myself better for my children's sake. I took charge of my health, I got responsible and did this this and this. That is what the judge is going to be looking for. With children involved it's not just about doing the next right thing. It's about doing ALL the right things. Take it one day at a time....sometimes you'll have to take it one hour at a time or one minute at a time. It's hard, but the final reward is oh, so worth it! Good luck to you!

Teresa~ I am glad that you are working hard to clean up your life. Keep up the hard work and make sure that you do everything you can - no matter how hard to get all your "poop in a group". You need to focus on you right now. Do all the things that you have to do and then do all the things you know you need to do or should do to better yourself as a person, woman and mother.
