See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I fell into a deep depression yesterday so I reached out for help. I was so out of my mind that I cried all the way to work while talking on the phone to to my daughters case worker. She said that by the way things sound it maybe best to have dcf involved to place the kids in a foster home for a couple of months until I get my act together. I was so out of my mind that I agreed. I asked her if I could still see them when I wanted to and she said yes. To make a long story short after the dcf investigator arrived she told me that the kids will not be taken away because they see that they only thing that I need is some counseling to help me get through the things that I am going through so that I can better care for myself and my children. The kids are at my parents house right now. They have been there for a few days. I picked them up to go out to lunch this afternoon and while eating they told me that my parents called them in the room after I left that day and said to them that I wanted to have them taken away and not have anything to do with them anymore. And that I felt that my life would go back to normal without them. They told my daughters that they would have to live far away and not be able to see the family if they were to be taken away. I was so hurt by all of this. I couldn't believe my parents would do such a thing. They could have at least told them that their mom was going through something at the time and when she feels better she will come around. I am really starting to believe that my parents are not on my side. I really dont feel like I have anyone at all. Me and my daughters were in tears over lunch and I was so happy to be able to explain to them what i was going through and that it had absolutely nothing to do with them and that mommy would never give up on them. Now what do I do? I dont even know if I want anything to do with my parents anymore.
