Help our little family reunite with our two oldest kids
Organized by: Chares Melissa Reta
About 10 years ago my children were taken away on a unfair judgement on cps behalf . I was forced to put my Children in my mothers temporary custody. Cps plan was to reunite me with there abusive father and go to couples counseling but I already knew what outcome would be if I returned with him . So I decided never to put my children. Through that again. To see all that violence at such a young age. When the cps case closed there in court the case worker sat me down and said how extremely sorry he was for putting me through everything he had realized what a good mother I was and that he was sorry. I than asked him give them back he then told me he was sorry but it was to much paperwork and El Paso was so behind on cases that he couldn't have more paper work. If I would've known then what I know now I would've told them I don't care about the paperwork do it . But I didn't Me thinking my mother would be trust worthy but later would find out she wasn't . They were only supposed to be in my moms temporary custody for six months after six she was supposed to give them back but sadly didn't she didn't want to give them back she was receiving money for them all directions and became a money hungry person. I met the love of my life and ended getting married over the past ten years I have taken my mother to court to take them back but miserably failed. My mother hasn't complied not once with the family plan the judge came up with .which included of me having to pick my little girl and boy up form my moms every other weekend I could take them home with me on Friday and drop them off back home on Sunday night . But she doesn't comply she isn't supposed to take them out of town with out my permission but does it anyway . I call them everyday and she never answers she has two phones and I can't have the other number. But she never answers my calls on the other one she has. I take the sheriff with me to pick up my kids but they can't make her comply all they say is that they can only write it down that she won't comply with visitation. I only get to see my kids once a year in December after Christmas. And this past time we went to court to get them back the judge told me u know what Hun u have suffered enough without having your kids he said u are taking your kids home today I was ecstatic I was happy finally . I had gotten a good lawyer finally boy was I wrong me And the judge and my wonderful husband were just waiting for my lawyer to show up to get the papers signed so I can take them home with us . We waited 4 hours and during this time I kept looking at my mother from across the room and she had a huge uncomforting smile on her face I couldn't figure her out. We waited and waited until the judge said he couldn't wait anymore so yet again we went home broken hearted. Hours later I get a phone call finally from my lawyer he called to say how sorry he was for not showing up but greed and guilt got the best of him but the day before my mother had gone in and gave him a good amount of money not to show up and he took it he also said that next time make sure that my mother doesn't know who my lawyer is . Sadly we spent all of our savings on this and well now we are living from paycheck to paycheck. I don't want to miss another years of my son and daughter I have missed enough. The sad thing about this is that at first I had my step dads support and now he is threatening to find a lawyer to take my rights completely so he can adopt them and take my last name from them he says he can do it that I should know how money talks. I can't even get school pictures of them I have to stock my brother or sisters to get pictures off of Facebook cause I can't even get that . So I download the pictures and cut everyone else out of them and leave my kids and enhance them it's sad they are afraid to even say they miss me because my mom gets mad at them my little girl was two when taken away now she is 14 and we were so close my son was 4 months old he is turning 11 . Please please help ! Help me reunite with my kids help us become the family we were meant to be from the beginning. Anything will help we will keep u informed of all the progress and once it is done u will receive a family photo thank u for listening and God bless.
