    Because contrary to popular belief, the goal of children's services is to reunite families. Not tear them apart and keep them apart. She obviously has went through the series of changes, parenting classes, drug tests and screens, classes, etc. And the court found her fit. Good luck and God bless****

    Because unfortunately for these kids the system is more interested in the parent's rights than in what is in the best interest of the child. We live in a society that doesn't value the life of children. We see it all the time on the evening news, parents abusing and even killing their children and getting away with it. It's a sad world we live in when our kids aren't even protected by the people that are supposed to love them the most.

    I think it all depends on the severity of the case and the State she resides in. Some States have programs that the parent must attend before they can even consider having their kids back. DCFS has some programs for this issue and also State requires these programs while the parent is either on probation or parole. The State reviews and DCFS monitors so maybe this is why this person got her kids back.

    that is not precisely responsible, yet yeah not newborn endangerment the two. i understand a guy who smokes blunts interior the vehicle, domicile windows up, along with his 4 365 days previous interior the backseat, that's newborn endangerment. i understand moms and dads that provide their 15 365 days olds beer or purchase em cigs, and different than the criminal concern, that is socially suited. besides the fact that that is been scientifically shown that alcohol and tobacco are worse for the physique than weed, pot remains considered a time table one narcotic, interior the same checklist as crack cocaine and heroin.

    Maybe they didn't have enough evidence to convict her and they released her with the kids. Or maybe they found out someone lied about it. Or the kids she supposed to have endangered didn't want to press charges. Most of the time, if they don't have enough evidence they let them loose and then they just forget about it until something bad happens. But I hope in this case nothing happens.

    Could be a million answers to your question but is not uncommon that in this great country we have one of the worst social services in the world.

    Did she get her children taken/ did she get them back? A friend of mine was in this situation. After about a yr. she had another baby b/c she said she felt that she wasn't going to see her kids again ( as in getting them back ) so she decided to have another. She said that she wanted to start over while she was stil young. If you ask me though, she was prob. not wanting her gov't benefits to stop, so she had another one but she did get her kids back, so now she has 3.
