Thank you everyone. As to Alexander coming home we are hoping for June but no one really knows and CPS says NEVER because they refuse to believe we didn't hurt him. (Hubby hasn't started mtx yet because he has to use medco and it hasn't arrived yet.) I just want to scream. I cannot understand how they can do this to us without any checks or balances. My research indicates that 90% of the kids taken should never have been taken and yet only 1 in 5 ever makes it home again. Our lawyers are confident that Alexander will be one of those who does go home. I do not understand how they can get away with this. Who gave them this much power? Who decided that due process could be thrown out the window and abuse be made a civil matter where the same rights do not apply? Who decided that ONE PERSON should be allowed to judge without facts? Because that is exactly what has happened 1 woman decided we abused Alexander without ever even seeing him. Anyone who spends 10 minutes with him realizes we don't abuse him, he is fearless and so
open to making friends I worry he will go off with strangers. Abused babies do not trust and Alexander trusts completely that no one will hurt him. He doesn't act like a baby but a young child. He is developmentally ahead of his age and abused children are usually behind. With our medical histories they should have believed me and tested him when I first requested testing for osteogenesis imperfecta but instead the judge had to order it be done. Heck the CPS worker stood there and argued with her that there was no need to test for it when he has blue tinging the whites of his eyes and a triangular shape to his head both of which are THE major signs of the disease.
I am sorry, I am just so darned frustrated and angry how can they get away with this? This state placed a child whose mother applied for help
with rent money one month into a foster home and terminated her rights for no good reason then they let another couple adopt him. They continued to take this woman's children as they were born and place them with the same couple. Then the couple who adopted these children murdered the first boy because he missed his mother and kept asking to go home to mommy. I am supposed to trust in a system that did this? I am supposed to believe that they only do this for the best when it has been proven they get 2-4 thousand dollars a month for every child in foster care and 10 thousand for ever child adopted by strangers. Yep, they profit off taking away people's kids and terminating their rights.
They have tried everything they can think of to avoid putting my son into a home where he has family. I think we finally have forced their hand so he will be put with his sisters. Once that happens it means that profit wise they are better off sending him home eventually. If the test comes back positive then there is an excellent chance that the judge will order he come home immediately since she was pissed at the CPS worker last time because she had a case in the past with osteogenesis imperfecta causing false accusations of abuse. I really hate to say I hope the test is positive but if he has to have something wrong with him then let them find it fast.
