Sorry this will be very long for those willing to read it. My husband and I will be married for 7 years tommorrow. I have know him and his children form his BM for 8 years his kids my sk were 2 and 1 (now 10 and 9). Through the years we as a family have dealt with his bm running away to florida with the sk for months. We have dealt with her physically and mentally abusing my SS. She tells him he's her bad child, she refused him food because he wouldn't clean his room that he shares with his other brothers (messes he didn't do on his own but expected to clean alone), she's choked him and left marks, she's thrown him into things, her husband now has choked him, she's locked him into his attic room for long periods of times and it gets unbearably hot up there, and has threatened him with not coming to see me and his father on weekends. We have called police and filed reports, we called children services and had them investigate twice but they have not found any evidence of abuse even though I have pics and documentation. But childrens services say we are not the only ones calling they still won't do anything. I feel like we are not getting heard and that we are calling wolf. But everybody tells us to keep up with the documentations, but why should we if it doesn't do any good? We tell my SS that we are trying to protect him but nobody helps us. Why?
