Child Abuse - Too Long to Remove My Son

by Danielle
(Nebraska, USA)

I lost a custody battle to my ex husban My son who is now four says daddy lets me watch him do drugs isnt that cool? Holds his toy screw driver like a meth pipe and finger like a lighter and even spins in back and fourth well when he comes to me he gets very violent by saturday usually stays up till 4 am and has crazy mood swings their is no controlling him I had a hair falical test done on him. the test came back possitive for a very significant ammount of meth on a daily basis. I was livid!!! It was called in by CA, myself, and several others. Nothing happened that day. Next day still havent heard anything. I blew up the abuse hotline along with loved ones called the police telling them about the situation and not only that his father has a history of violence and so does his fathers girl friend (she has 2 assult charges pending now). Since march of 2011 they both have managed to run up several charges between themselves. I am trying for custody again. I do not understand why they could not pull my son out the day i called them!!! I beleive that should be a form of child abuse!!! I even sent NTV news a email. I think he should have been removed immediatly not 48 hrs. to assign case and make take up to 5 days to investigate. What if my son were to get ahold of something it would explode his heart! I do not think that drug child abuse is getting enough attention. I think they should truly remove the child ASAP. I have done everything i can think of and still fight.

I agree with you. Child Protective Services need to act much quicker in such circumstances. Keep being the advocate you are for your son. And get him the help he's going to need now that he's been exposed to such harmful behaviours. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, and I wish you and your son all the best.
