I recently had another supervised visit this past Friday, although I love seeing my son, seeing him in this environment is really not the best thing for him. I can tell that he is nervous with this lady sitting there staring at us and taking notes, he just doesn't act the same. It's almost like we are on stage putting on a show, you never know what CPS if looking at and how they are going to review us. I won't know until I go back to court next week and they make up more lies about us.
The other problem with spending an hour in this crappy meeting room is that their toy selection is slim-to-none. They have toys, but pretty much only parts of toys. They have puzzles that are missing pieces, and you don't know until you are almost done with it. They have games with all sorts of other game pieces mixed in with it. How do you play Monopoly with one die, four Candyland cards and six Scrabble letters? It is just very hard to try and be normal with your child when he is stuck in a room that really isn't any fun. I'm sure all this was written down and put into a report somewhere stating that my son looks unhappy to be in the room with me, when he is in fact upset that I can not go home with him and that all the toys in this room are broken or missing parts. What can I do? I just try my best to make my son feel safe and happy, but I know it hurts him to have to leave me after only an hour. I just want my boy and family back, and CPS doesn't care. If they did care about the family being together, they would have looked at all the facts of the case and made the right decision. Instead they chose to continue with their original accusation without ever looking at the entire case.
