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.
