brokenhearted and don't understand.....
*** update*** she called me literally .5 seconds after submitting this post.lol
Court has been postponed til Monday. The dad has agreed to take them for the weekend, to give time for one of their family members to get here. After which, they will have temporary custody of them and take them to texas.
The evening that the media reported the story, certain individuals took reporters to her house, where tons of people proceeded to harass her home with her older 2 children present. Not sure how long this went on, but the kids were freaked out so she left her home with them. Not to mention the death and physical threats toward her.
She was not ordered in any way to remain in our town, but she notified dcfs she was taking her kids to GJ to be safe until things calmed down, as a courtesy (almost 2 hours away). She remained in contact with dcfs, as a courtesy, the 4 or 5 days she was there, and all seemed well.
She got home yesterday to close down her store and get her kids enrolled in K12. Late yesterday afternoon, dcfs came to her home and took her children, with a warrant. The reason cited was that she was a 'flight risk'. They scheduled court for today, giving her minimal time to retain an attorneyand gather affidavits, etc., to defend herself in court.
They are wanting to send the children 3 hours away instead of placing them in a foster home, here. The "father" refused to take them, and told dcfs to just throw themIin foster care.
My heart is breaking for those babies. I've just been crying off and on since yesterdayevening.
