My kids father and I share custody of our kids. He's married and has a family of his own and I as well. We have 2 amazing beautiful kids. Ny son is almost 7 and my daughter is almost 5. We have a trust
relationship with regarding our kids, for instance if the kids are sick or not having a good day or is having trouble with homework, or is going through some things those are the things we discuss when their father
picks them up on the weekends and drops them off. We touch base on our concerns woth kids and how we can take care of it and then we go our separate ways. Well as of last week, I noticed when I bathed my daughter that she had mysterious bruises on her side rib and all on her legs. I asked her where she got it from and she said she doesn't know. I asked if it hurt and she said no. So I didn't think anything of it. Their kids she has an older brother that's wrestles with her and an older cousin that plays rough with her sometimes, but I hobestly didnt think anything of it. Well the weekend of their dads visit was last weekend and I never mentioned the bruises to him because I forgot and obviously didnt think it was a big deal because my daughter never complained or showed that she was in any pain. Well Monday comes around and I'm waiting for my daughter to walk in my front door and nothing! I called the school to see if he dropped my son off to school and nothing. I was thinking the absolute worst thing a mother can think of. I went a little crazy and grabed my keys and went straight to the police station to tell them what is going on. They told me to go home they will call and send police over to my kids fathers house. A few hours later cops and CPA came over to tell me that they are keeping the kids away from me until court for child abuse! What?!!??? Are you kidding?? He never once called to ask me about our daughters bruises or acted concerned. He just took my kids away like that and the law and police allowed it. They have no proof, no evidence that I did this to my daughter. My kids need their mother and these next week and a half are going to be the longest days of my life. My kids need their mother as much as I need air to breath. I have court next Friday with them and I don't know what I will do if I loose custody of my kidsover something I never did and neve would do. I'm desperate so Any help or advice is so much appreciated. Thank you.
