I wouldn't be to blasted certain about that, state agencies are pretty
freaking hot to take kids away in america today=\
I know they wanted to take my goddaughters away from Pat and Tim, on
the grounds that they have 6 children [all girls] , because the nurse
when she was confined with #6 sprout heard me talking with one of the
kids about 'daddy dearest' who is a ped*phile...not realizing we were
referring to Pats father...and it took serious arguing and dragging pats
brother and sister into it before they backed down. Good thing is that I
actually have legal guardianship of the kids, and could actually remove
them from the household entirely if I see fit. I was literally with in
hours of vanishing the girls to keep them out of the state fostering
system. [FWIW, I was giving her a prepaid cell phone to use because
@sshat ped*phile was making sounds about wanting to visit pat and the
girls and I didn't want to find out later he jiggered the phone lines so
they couldnt call me. That is *just* the type of garbage he would pull.
Of course this was well after I told him succinctly that if I ever
caught him within 10 feet of one of the girls that I *know* how to
dispose of bodies and I would be glad to vanish him.]
I can see the state removing the kid from the home because the parents
werent medicating the sprats on the grounds that they were not acting in
the best interest of the children..after all, it is *for the good of the
children* that they conform...and I can see them forcibly medding mom by
giving her the choice of taking meds or kids get taken away so she won't
