I wasn't judging you, just trying to establish the details. It sounds like you are now doing all the right things. If I were you, I would also seek some independent professional advice to ensure you don't inadvertently make a mistake that could cost you, and to help you through the process. Don't sign anything else unless you have legal advice.

section 20 accomadated, so i still have parental rights over him, and his red book and things, i signed for it, other wise they was going to take me to court, and i could of lost in court, i met a guy who at the time i didnt no was bad, i really didnt, 5weeks later, (very short relationship once i found out what he was like) socail servises were saying basically if i dont sign then they are taking me to court, if i lose in court my sons gone till hes 18, so i signed it, so the parent assesment gets done and i PRAY hes home in 12 weeks, im not a bad mom, my sons 3 years old, very happy, and clever, my house is clean, i do everything right, i just met the wrong guy, and learnt what he was like after 5weeks, very vilont horrible person, please dont judge me :(

Depending on where you live, Section 20 could mean different things. What was the silly mistake? On what basis did they take your child?
