Made it back

I'm back from the hearing and my sweet baby stayed put like she needed to. The hearing did not go as I hoped. Because of my sons mental health issues and that I have a 2 yo and will soon have a new baby they decided to give my ex temporary custody of my older 2 kids. I'm heartbroken. It is only temporary at this point, but I'm so confused that he can be absent most of their lives and then come in and take them even temporarily. At the very least, he has to let me visit with them now. I'm trying to focus on being excited about this baby, but my heart is so broken and I'm so worried about my older two I'm really, really struggling. He's never had them longer than two weeks. Please send T&P for me and my older kids, and my 2 yo is struggling with missing them too.

I've had a lot of people close to me dealing with custody issues and I swear all the judges involved in these things are too screwed up themselves to make proper decisions. It never makes any sense. My cousin is a scbag loser who lives in filth with 12 people and she's the only one with a job. Her kid is always sick and mysteriouy injured. Aunt and uncle sued for custody to keep the child safe and lost. How???? None of it makes sense.

In other words, I am so so so so sorry you have to deal with this. The whole system is sucky and my heart breaks for you.

Oh Lauren. I'm so sorry. My eyes are filled with tears reading this. I understand how heartbroken you must feel. What a shock. I feel bad for your kids too. I was mainly raised by my mom and only saw my dad occasionally. I'm not sure I would have WANTED to live with him. *hugs*
