My children were victim's of child abuse in 2009, nearly resulting in death for my oldest daughter(subdural hematoma and partial drowning) by my ex husband's wife. I got in some trouble with drugs in the past(I've been clean now for over a year), so CPS is involved with not just my ex-husband and his abusive wife, but me also. We got a restraining order against her last year, then come December at the grandma's house, the restraining and child protective order were broken under the grandma's supervision. I had a missed appointment for my daughter's counceling, and now the case worker is going to allow my kid's to go back to the grandma's for over-night visits. First, let me point out that I do know I messed up with the whole drug use thing, and I'd give anything to take it back(unfortunately I cant); the restraining and child protective orders were broken at the grandmothers home under her supervision, and that these were the people who allowed the abuse, not to mention the fact they told my daughter to lie about certain abusive incidences. I'm just wondering what steps I could possibly take to protect my kids from future harm. CPS is out of the question, since it's the Child Case Manager who is allowing the over-nights. Any suggestions on what I could do? I am terrified that my kid's will get hurt again, or even killed. Please help!!
