My life shattered within hours.

I packed the baby's bag, and got myself around for work.

We were headed out the door to leave, and as I opened my door, a business card fell. I glanced at it, and it said a woman's name, then showing she was from the CPS in my county. It said "please call".

I called immediately, and left a message. It was after business hours by the time I got the card. 

Heartbroken, I walked to my car with my baby. I went to work for a few hours, the entire time wondering if this will be the last few days I have with him, as his mommmy. I've been here before, and the outcome was terrible. 

So, not only am I fighting to get my 4yo back, now I'm fighting to keep my 6mo who has not been away from me since the day he was born.

I don't know what the allegations are, but I can tell you 100% without a doubt, that it was her. The guardian. It was her. I know this because she threatened to call CPS on me last week when she heard the judge say he didn't want to open another case. She went and found new allegations and called CPS on me in a different county because 4yo's ordeal is in the next county over. 

I feel dead inside. If they take my baby Kelly, I will... just... I'd just fucking die.

If you're going to be judgemental, go away. This is the 5th time she's called on me since 4yo was born. She is desperate. She doesn't want me to take away her $500 monthly paycheck, being my son. That's what this is about. I've known for a while now that she stole 10 grand from her mother to buy her house and her mom doesn't speak English, so she has no clue.

I am scheduled to get 4yo back in August. The judge sees me as a fit parent, and has no interest on investigating me again. This angered her, that I am actually doing okay for myself, and she is now seeking revenge and/or ways to prevent me from getting him back.


UPDATE:

I took the kids swimming this morning, and we just got home. While we were out, I called the courthouse where my son's case is through in Probate Court. They looked up my file and said that the judge didn't order a case to be opened and if he did it would show on the file.

So, again, I confirmed it was her.

I called her this morning and she said they were at her house yesterday morning. She said she came in and looked, asked her what her concerns were, and left. She said she thought I called on her. I told her I did not.

I think she's lying.

Update 2:

I just talked to the caseworker. She said the allegations are that 4yo got his hair pulled and that I leave him in the house by himself while I run errands.

Yeah. It was her.

Sweetie call your lawyer and breathe deep.

It sounds like they will realize that she is just trying to get back at you. It's a good thing that the judge was already doing the reunification process with your son. It tells CPS that even the judge believes that you are a fit parent. They will talk to you and then talk to the caseworker that you have dealt with before in your county. Then more then likely they will close the case especially when they hear of all the trouble she has been about following the Judges orders.

Please, save it. Yes, some people are just curious... while others are digging because they doubt her story.

Well, if she's going to do that, make sure your house is absolutely clean.  Make sure the baby's needs are completely met.  Always be civil and polite whenever you speak with anyone with CPS.  Prove them wrong. 

Quoting hp2011:

No, the judge said he had no interest in doing that.

Quoting Refurbished:

Aren't they going to check on you once in a while if your child is scheduled to come back? 

Quoting hp2011:

I know it was her because the only other people who could have called said they didn't.

Quoting Refurbished:

How do you know she called?  Maybe they are doing random checks before they let your son come back?

Alright. I'm glad you got him back! If the judge deemed you a good parent. If she keeps calling about you with false alligations you can file a complaint against her for casket accusations.
