Im Katleen a single mom of two beautiful kids. Both are girls14 & 7. I have been having truancy issues which I had to go to court..they made the kids dependant and granted them back to me. I have been through 4 c y s workers. I have not heard from the case worker since before Christmas .now because my kids exceeded the 16 days they're gonna pation the court to remove them from my home.I work 40 hours a week always here take them to Dr's apt.etc. i feel like such a failure .they are letting my sis have them for 3 months.now they are letting her know more things then they told me .something isn't right. Why are they punishing me and my kids. I'm in fear I will loose them forever.

Your children NEED to be at school.
In our area, the limit is only 10 days. If you cannot get them to school on the days they need to be there, then it is probably better for them to be with someone who can handle that responsibility for now. They will be with your sister, so you will still be a big part of their lives. It doesn't mean you are a bad mom, you just can't handle it all right now.
If this is the only issue you have, once you have your schedule under control and can assure that you can handle getting the girls to and from classes as needed, I am sure they will review your case and restore custody.
