I left my drug addict abusive ex. Let's call him 'Jo' didn't know I was pregnant at the time. I came back. The abuse got worse, I fled with my toddler son to a shelter for women domestic who were victims of domestic violence. When the baby was born, I stupidly gave my ex another chance. The abuse continued. When I told him i was leaving, he had me arrested and I was put in jail
My children were taken after I took my baby (6 weeks) to the hospital. It was found out her father had hurt her. They took my children. I kicked him out and he went to prison. I didn't get my kids back. The abuser and I had the EXACT same chance to get her back and I had a chance to get my other 2 back. There was no danger in my house. I was questioned by cops unrecorded and denied a lawyer or mental health professional and then preceded to tell me I was a horrible mom because I went to sleep after 3 days of not sleeping, (I have PTSD caused by being in foster care myself) all in front of my cps case worker.
