My Story begins 10 years ago.
When I had my son I had a C-section and it wasn’t because of this that I got DCF called on me it is because I have a heart condition and they didn’t think that I could take care of my son because of it.
Luckily at that time they did not pursue a case however that’s not stop harassing me I got more and more calls on me open and closed cases on the same thing over and over again a dirty house my house is messy yes but happens with kids is just how it is.
5 years ago my kids were taken they were taken because I have a heart condition and they stated that I cannot take care of my kids because of it regardless of the fact that my doctor says that I can care for them and has written the note to this effect. She has also called them and said that I can do everything a normal person can do that my heart condition doesn’t stop me from doing anything however they refused return my children to me my daughter has been adopted I had to sign paperwork the forest open adopt and I was told I would never see my girls again if I didn’t.
I was scared and alone me and my fiance more in different rooms or lawyers we are both told that we had no other choice that we would lose the case if we fought. My lawyer even told me when I told him I didn’t want to sign the paperwork but if I didn’t sign the paperwork not only what I never see my girls again but he would never represent me again at the time I was still fighting for my son and I didn’t know what to do.
I signed that paperwork under duress. I regret it every single day!
Now they want me to sign something else for my son that I will not sign I will not make the same mistake again they want me to sign paperwork that states that I am unwilling unable or incapable of caring for my son I will not sign the paperwork I don’t care can’t do it.
I will fight as long as I have to get my children home.
The hardest part for me is when I would go to visits with my daughters my oldest daughter would beg me not to go please Mommy please don’t go please don’t leave me here. I had to leave I didn’t have a choice my daughter’s hands will be pressed up against the glass begging me to come back.
So many times my son who I see on Tuesdays every Tuesday I go and see him he begs to go home he asked who we can tell that he wants to go home I have to tell him that it’s not up to Mommy and Daddy that’s up to the judge and the Department of Children and Families. Despite the fact that I’ve done nothing wrong. My son asked me why he was there one time I told them the truth I told him he was there because grandma and Auntie had lied about Mommy and Daddy and that they were the reasons why my son was there. I also told them that the apartment did not think that I could take care of him because of my medical condition but my son piped up and said that Mommy you can and you do you do take good care of me. Tell them that you take good care of me I took my son to the side and explain to him doesn’t matter what she say you’re not going to listen to you sweetheart they’ve already made up their mind.
Now I only get phone calls with him because it’s a virus it’s very difficult especially my my son wants to come home so very badly. My daughters have been brainwashed my youngest she was 2 weeks old when she was taken has been moved from foster home to foster she’s been moved to 6 different doctrines for the age of one suffers PTSD and night terrors. My youngest daughter was taken when she was only 2 weeks old from the hospital.
