Re: Ok so anonymous therapy DOES EXIST!

Well it looks like we might have found some middle ground. Found a therapist who specializes in Reactive Attachment Disorder, or RAD, and one of the "hallmarks" of RAD is triangulation and lying... and so most RAD specialist therapists conduct therapy sessions with the parent or parents pa...

Re: custody / legal issue

Yeah, it is very confusing because when he took off with her for a year, he had four or five different addresses. Even when we got her home, CPS was still involved, and he did not give us his current address. We mentioned it to the cps worker and she got it from him and gave it to us. That's the las...

Re: custody / legal issue

So the last address HE gave us, not the one I can find via Google? ;) I tried to find specific legal info, in the Texas family code and elsewhere, spelling this out but could not. :(

Re: custody / legal issue

Well he just made a child support payment! Arrgh! Actually last month but we didn't know. It goes to a debit card and it had been so long since the last payment we hadn't bothered to check. But dangit, doesn't that re-start his "clock" on the abandonment issue? I think it does, even if he ...

Re: getting medical records from when she was gone?

I have emailed Medicaid in Texas. I am just confused, since I want the medical records but first I have to find out where he took her (which hospitals, clinics, doc offices, etc) so I am hoping that that is in the Medicaid claims history or something and they will tell me.

custody / legal issue

This is not really CPS related at this point (though they started the whole mess!) If you aren't familiar with our story, here is the 30 second version: DD was with bio dad on court ordered visit. CPS shows up for reasons unrelated to us, investigating about other people in the home. Bio dad lies an...

Re: Concerned about another family...

Yes, CPS will arrive to kidnap the children of the family in the tent if they are called. I hope this family is able to find housing very soon. If they tell anyone in the county's housing authority that they are living in a tent, this worker may call CPS on them, also. When they go to apply for hou...

I know of someone who is allowing a family to live in a tent in their backyard. This family (mom, dad, kids) was homeless.

Re: Letter to school

I don't understand... If CPS knows you refuse to allow an interview at home, then they cannot go conduct one at school. But isn't it common for CPS to bypass you entirely and head straight to school before you (the parent) have any idea that they are even investigating? We had that happen. Well, in ...

Thanks y'all! We have been so on the fence. Her primary problems look like some form of Reactive Attachment Disorder. One of the hallmark features of this problem is "crazy lying" and it is common for kids with this issue to lie and say they have been abused, not fed, whatever. She will li...

Re: They are still demanding that I get a job

That is crazy.

Were you caring for her before on your SSI? If so, how can they say that you can't care for her?

I thought they were not SUPPOSED to consider poverty neglect, but isn't that what they are doing? I am sorry, I wish I had more answers.

getting medical records from when she was gone?

How can we go about getting medical records from the time our daughter was not in our care?

She was with her biological father, but under CPS supervision. No contact with him anymore. She was on Medicaid though. Will Medicaid tell us what docs or clinics she visited in that year?

I wasn't sure where to put this, and it pertains to how to best protect ourselves in the future from unwanted / unwarranted CPS intrusion. We are moving out of state next year.
