Child protective services just showed up at my doorstep.  They had my Dad come and take my kids.  They say I have 30 days to get my house presentable and my kids are not allowed to come home until I do.  If anyone lives near East Texas, I am calling for all the help I can get!  Please!  I have a couple of friends to help, but other than that I am on my own.  I have even been looking up housekeepers to come help me.  I am desperate!!!

I don't live anywhere near Texas but I can say that I understand how terrified you are right now. It will be okay. This is scary and awful, but it's the motivation you need to get your home in order. Take the nervous energy and USE IT to be productive! We will be here for you in any way we can.

Sending Hugs your way, I have been worried about this myself from time to time with my ex's wife.

Not close enough to come help, but suggestion- contact a local church to ask for help, I know that LDS and catholic churches are willing to help any way possible even if you're not a member.

How can we help?  I'm just about as far from Texas as you can get, but I've got a lot of experience with cleaning and organizing, and would love to help.

What specific things were there complaints about?  And trust me, dear girl, I'm not here to judge, just offer my help and support.

What was the reasoning for removing your CHildren..

My advice is to start in one room. (Main room preferably) Start in one corner work from top to bottom.. Make sure you have a basket with you. When you find something that does not belong there, you put it in that basket.. You put the whole basket away when you finish the room.. That stops the distractions.. Work each room that way.. Start in a corner, work from top to bottom.. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
