So, at 3:09 I get a call from Natasha at CPS (from an Unknown Number so lucky I answered at all)... Sister and the kids are at her office right now and since we've taken KK (niece) in the past they figured we might again... and thrown in a 6 month old nephew too... she asked me why we chose to quite taking care of her back then... excuse me WHAT... WE didn't chose anything, KK was removed according to the agent at the time because we made $50/month too little to support her. Thought it was a lie at the time, but couldn't do anything about it. Then she asks if since then we've had any criminal acts, etc. Still married? So on... long story short she wanted to know if we could take KK and Max immediately. I told her I would have to call DH and speak to him. That we don't make rash decisions like that without talking it over. Tried calling DH at work, they were swamped, other guy wasn't there so running like mad... I'll call you back. At 3:38 (not even 30 minutes you notice) Sis calls whooping and hollaring "They're taking my kids"... never once in the rant did she say "Will you take them"... not once... and while on the line mentions she's been there since 9am.... over SIX hours and this is the first she could bother calling me... though, she took time to call mom, who's also there and had been for an hour... NO ONE called me about any of this... until the caseworker did. She says that weeks ago when they stayed in a shelter a couple days that someone called on them and they're just now getting around to doing anything... that they gave her a drug test and while she admits to smoking pot "all this other stuff showed up somehow"... yeah right... anywho, going on and on ... I said "the caseworker told me it was okay for me to call DH and talk to him and then call her back. Had me jot down her full name and number and everything, so what the heck?" So she's relaying this, but I can't hear the reply... more upset... then CLICK. That's helpful. Tried called Natasha, got voicemail... said something like "Sis just called, and she's understandably emotional, could you please call and let me know what's going on? Thanks." but no call back as yet. Tried calling mom, she just sounds dazed... WAY too mellow... which is kinda freaking me out... she's a ranter you know? Ended with 'can't talk now" (in almost a monotone) and that was that. DH finally called me back at 3:58 (not a full hour since first contact) and said what I figured... that it's NOT a good idea... now I know I can't handle a baby... mentioned it just a few weeks back, the fact I don't speak baby anymore... I'm spoiled having kids that tell me when they're hungry, thirsty, etc. But, with the class he's in right now he's REALLY threadbare and this won't help. Not that KK is a problem, but having CPS breathing down our necks AGAIN, having Sis pulling her stunts AGAIN (can't even begin to describe all that since this is a family site, yes THAT bad, and in front of her kids and ours).... it's just too much. So, much as I love them, and it's going to just KILL me... so would having them here... and then it would also be MY kids at risk too, and I just can't do that... they're my responsibility, my #1 priority... KK and Max should be the same for Sis, but just never have been. Anywho, just feeling about two inches tall and needed to vent... Mods if this is too adult feel free to delete it, I won't mind. Wish that I didn't know about it, so I understand if no one else wants to.
