Cps case open
Posted: Fri Sep 19, 2014 6:00 pm
Hello, my name is felicia and I am a single mother of an almost 4yr old little girl whom I took care of alone for 2yrs 1month and 1week and has been in cps for 19 months and they are in the process of doing a tpr. They are basing it on my mental health disability saying that I can't parent my baby cuz I have a low IQ and meet the minimum required standards for parenting. They will be adopting her out to my older half brother whom I have very little of a relationship with and whom she has only met through video chat that the worker arranged without my knowledge or consent. I have expressed in no uncertain terms how traumatized everyone involved will be including at the very least my little girl who doesn't even understand what's going on anyway. Although I have an attorney the one representing me on the juvenile case I'm not satisfied with her work I feel she could do more to help but at the same time since this is new to me as a new parent and first offender I don't have the knowledge I feel I need to help her help me. I know she wants to come home as she tells me every time I see her and gets upset when she asks and I tell her not right now and sometimes cries when she has to leave. Although I feel I am making progress cps doesn't see it or care to see it cuz they have decided against lengthening my visits with her. And they are basing it on my mental health disability still even though I am stable on my meds with a stable income and stable housing. I honestly don't feel I'm being treated fairly.
