I'm new to this group. I have twin boys that will be 2 on Valentines Day. They were removed from my home Sept 23 by CPS as I was using meth. Meth is a huge issue from where I'm from and I won't make excuses but I'm sober 115 days today and I'm working on getting my boys back. I'm 38 and they are probably be the only ones I'll have. Anyone have any recommendations on rules for them when I get them back? Besides staying far from their dad. Thats best for all concerned. I'm on disbility due to a bad back from working as a nurse but these are my first and I'm looking for any advice or encouragement I can get

first, GOOD JOB on getting and staying clean! Keep up the hard work!

Second, just remember consistency. Be consistent in your house rules, expectations, rewards and punishments. You'll do fine.

In addition, as Sarah has suggested, document. Every interaction with your ex, every interaction with anyone. Follow the suggested courses for getting the kids back. Whatever they ask, comply. Show willingness to be a good, responsible person (which you already ARE showing willingness), and things should go well.

The judge is impressed with my willingness to do anything and everything. I even have my public defender on my side and since he's a criminal prosecutor for the county that goes a long way

Document everything you do. Every single day. Include your meetings or rehab efforts as well. Keep a record of your drug tests. If CPS recommended anything, do it. Parenting classes, vocational classes, if they suggest it; do it.
