Before people start judging me please know my children's father got children services involved due to his drug use. I took every drug test and did everything they asked for and at the time got my boys back I was with a friend that I didn't know used and got pulled over my children were not with me nor was I doing drugs. The Caseworker at the time filed for temp custody and this killed me. Instead of me fighting I gave up and figured they took what mattered to me so why fight. I oded twice and I thought that was the way out and not too be in this pain. My ex mom is trying to get full custody of them and my parents have had them for the last year she just got them a month ago. When my parents had them I was with them 3-5 nights a week talked everyday now since I'm not with her son and she didn't like me I haven't spoken to my boys this whole time and haven't seen them. I've tried getting the Caseworker to help but she just got this case and isn't very helpful and even cares. I'm fighting for my boys and idk what else to do I loose them my life is over.

I assume you all got charged with possession? If is was simply "by" your purse, that is not "in" your purse. Your name was run and you had an outstanding warrant, so you would have been arrested anyway. If this was a temporary placement, then CPS would have had a plan to reunite you with your kids. I get you were depressed and scared but overdosing twice does cast a good light on you ability to handle stress. A possession charge is not a possession conviction, what happened with the case? What was the outstanding warrant for?

I was with my friend and her new boyfriend that had it on him and when my ex was doing all this he wrote bad checks and the police pulled us over he was in the back seat and my purse was on the floor on the other side he threw it by my purse and the police officer ran my name and there was a warrant so got taken next thing I know I got a possession charge. The Caseworker filed for temp custody to the state and placed with my parents. When there dad my ex was doing this he wasn't paying the rent and he made us lose our home. Its also hard to explain when typing it. I'm not trying or lying about this. I would and always are very truthful about this

Something isn't right with your story. You were with a friend who uses, but you were clean and your kids were not even there, and you still lost custody? What were you even charged with? Then in your misery you overdosed, twice? I thought you did not do drugs? CPS doesn't pull kids from the one stable parent unless the kids are really in danger. You even had the benefit of clean drug tests before the incident.
Taking a drug overdose was a bigger error in judgement than riding with a friend who uses. It shows your inability to handle change and stress. I get your were heartbroken but it was a temporary order and the kids were with your parents! I cannot advise you if you are not being forthcoming and there are too many holes in the story.
