To help you better understand why here is my story... I am a victim of domestic violence. My eldest son and I were abused for years by my Husband. I left my husband back in March of 2009. He found me and held me against my will for three weeks in Feb 2010 and I managed to escape.
While I was in Shelter; the courts awarded him full custody of my two babies in March of 2010. I missed the court date because I was in the Shelter. It has been a living hell since and at the time I have not been back in court since August to fight. I could not afford a lawyer and my court appointed on was a POS. She never submitted any evidence into court on my behalf; And I missed the trail because of transportation issues. So needless to say he has gotten off free.
Well my 4yr old called me this evening without my husband's knowledge and was crying hysterically. He kept telling me that daddy hurt him real bad and hit him! When I tried to ask him what happened; my husband ripped the phone out of his hands; told me to mind my own damn business and hung up! I called CPS; but I feel sooooo helpless! CPS always comes back as unfounded; even after my eldest told them what he did! (He has a friend that is in the head department for CPS; but I can't prove it). I don't know what to do anymore; I feel so damn helpless as a mother! My job is to protect my babies; and I feel like I have failed them!
I don't know how many times I have sat and argued with CPS before; I am soooo sick of wasting my time! My daughter has had a diaper rash and yeast infection before on numerous ocasions; unfounded. He brought them around a level two sex offender and left my kids alone with him; unfounded (waas told t simply keep him away from the kids). My kids lived in a cockroach infested trailer; but it was okay since he was making an attempt to get rid of them! What the hell happened to CPS protecting our children?!?!? Sorry for venting but I feel so helpless here!!!
