Child Abuse - Ohio Children Services Do Nothing

by Kay
(Ohio, USA)

Our future should be more important: 
Im from Ohio and the children service is sitting on there butts getting paid.. How can nothing be done when a female who has already been convicted of a felony is or has been on probation for 5 yrs. She gave birth to a child who was addicted to opiates, but there was nothing they could do because it was prescribed to the mother.The mom lost 2 older children due to drug abuse.Recently she tested positive for meth and the children service said they could not do anything. the mom had custody and family or the father couldnt apply for custody. they had agreed on a custody between mom and dad approx 2 yrs before.So when will it be child abuse getting high on meth with a toddler? After the kid touches a needle or mom accicently gives her hep. c or aids? It is sad when an adults drug abuse is not abuse to children.Honestly a child under five shouldnt be unattended.People on meth are dangerous to themselves let alone a child who is in diapers and drinks a bottle.when is this childs life and well being IMPORTANT ? or is it they r not 18-21 and cant vote but they hurt and feel pain. I dont wanna have to see another small casket, because they dont matter.These babies should matter more then anything else.... I pray god helps me understand and protects those innocent lives.

Perhaps contacting your local congressional representative for some answers would be appropriate. Consider contacting your local paper as well to bring the story out in the open. Thank you for sharing this story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy, Kay; and not just to you, but to the children and addicted parent in this case too.

I understand where you're coming for and I kind of agree,but what you have to realize is that sometimes it's the laws not the workers that are flawed. There are many times when the workers want to help, but their hands are tied because of stupid and/or flawed laws.
