I foolishly listened to the hospital my son was taken too after he assaulted my other stepson and nephew. I reported his behavior to the local police department and their advice for him pulling knives on two different occasions after he just got out of a juvenile facility in Louisiana was to take him to the hospital. They would not allow me to file charges on him.
After about a week in the hospital, where he has been on numerous occasions, the doctors recommended that I call CPS and tell them that I will not be picking him up from the hospital. I asked if he could go to residential as he has many times in previous years but they told me that my insurance company felt it was a waste of money. I also attempted to find him a facility before he would be released in a few days. I called every facility that CPS gave me and none of them would take him due to his violent behavior. This all occurred while my husband was in Iraq. My husband had enough on his mind over there with the daily mortar attacks that he didnt need to be worrying about us over here.
My husband now is paying child support which he should but CPS tells us they cant find the bioliogical mother even though Ive given them a number and a social security number. The bioliogical mother has never paid child support for the children after she went to jail for abuse on them. The children have been in therapy for years and the only ones that seem to pay our the children and us, never her.
My husband also has been charged with abandonment even though he was in Iraq. The biological mother has no charges on her even though she has abandoned these children time and again. Now we worry whether we will be able to continue paying the child support if my husband doesnt have a job.
