Did they give you a case worker? Can you ask her if there are any other resources you need or things to do? Is there a spot that can offer you any assistance? Try to find resources for women or parents in the community. It depends on your location but a lot of places will have community resources where people can help you get assistance.

What are the reasons they were taken? Have you done the things needed already to work things out?

My best advice would be to get a councellor and also join a parenting support group or even class if they don't have any groups around. If you ask your case worker they should be able to direct you towards proper resources in the area.

I don't know why they were taken or what you need to do but the fact that you're making changes proves you're trying to do what's best for them. Keep changing things one step at a time and continue asking for help.

Definitely talk to your case worker and contact local resources and just ask the person for assistance. If they don't know they can usually direct you. Try to get a councellor as they will be able to help you prioritize what to do and keep you on track, as well as a parents group of some sort especially if (hopefully when!) you get them back you'll want a support system already in place. Good luck to you and I sincerely hope you get them back soon.
