I am a mother of two children, ages son 5 and daughter 2. I am also ( common law ) married with the father of my daughter. will be four years in July of this year.
My husband and I have been goin through finacial hard times the past seven months and for there causes stress. In december 2007 my husband went to jail for family assult on me which the police statement was not filled out with the whole truth.
I asked my husband not to be taken to jail then but they took him anyway. Now weeks pasted and he went to jail again for terriostic threat on me back in I want to say in May the first part. I did not fill out a ststement then but they took him any way. now i have signed two afidavids dropping all charges on my husband
Now on May 21 a call was placed to CPS reporting us and they came out that Friday couple days later. Now this is the kicker we live in San Jacinto Co. and the CPS investorgater that came out was from montgomery co.
The CPS workers also came out with two undercover gentlemen that were police to aide in the protection of the CPS workers because they said that my husband was violant.
The CPS workers interveiwed both my kids and my husband and I as well. After looking around in the house, taking photos of everything that they could nit pick at. the one worker called her supervisor and decided to remove my kids from the home due to they said it was not safe.
Now my husband and I were in the process of moving to another location and 90 percent of our belongings were already moved out. We had no electricity because we had it cut off BUT we did have a generator powering a 110 ac window unit which kept it very cool.
we had food, running water, and every thing we needed to take care of the kids. Now mind you we were going to be out of the house that weekend due to us moving. thats why we had it like that.
The CPS worker told us that they were removing the kids on a volunteer placement and we had to find a family member that would pass an full background check. no priors, jail, pretty much nothing on their record.
the only ones that passed were my parents. so thats were they are at this time. ok CPS said we had to pass a drug test whic we did, we were able to see the kids but could not sleep over the night with them. But we could but with them all day supervised by my parents.
about a week later CPS the one that came to our house called my husband and had got a attitude with him. he had caught her in some lies there on the phone. my husband was upset and all he said to her was " Im getting my kids back" now with the priors my husband had on his record she took this the wrong way.
she took it as a threat and called her supervisor in austin he then spook to my husband and decided to have the state take full custody of my kids. It has been a month since we have seen our kids we cant even talk to them on the phone.
the CPS worker told us we would have to pass 2 drug test now before we could see the kids. one we already passed. There was a court hearing on monday june 9th for the kids. the judge decided to keep the kids with my parents. the judge also ordered a folical hair test which i was told could take 3 weeks to wait for the order that being the second. thats messed up
i have asked the workers if in the meantime we take another urine drug test so we can see our kids they said NO... we have another court date on july 29th to see my husbands and my progress in the classes we need to take.
our kids are our life and come before anyone i dont understand how they could do this when the person that called in on us is just an mad x friend trying to get revenge. there were so many lies they told me , husband, and to my parents.
CPS will not return any calls i leave messages every day. and when the state took over it got switched to another county as well. some of the lies have been if i stay with my husband we would not get the kids back, and some told us if we did this togeather it would be better.
i need help somewhere due to this we have lost everything and I WANT justice and my kids back where they belong with their parents. CPS needs to be brought out in the open and by someone that isnt scard.
