This is a long story, hopefully I won't leave any of the important parts left out. I have had 2 major back surgery's in the past 2 years. Anyway, I had my last back surgery the end of November 2005, I was in the hospital and nursing home for 2 months after this surgery. My sister and brother-in-law came from Texas to Indiana and offered to help by taking my 3 kids (8 year old twins and a 5 year old) back to Texas with them while I was recovering. We agreed and signed temporary guardianship papers. The papers that I signed were while I was on heavy narcotics the day after my back surgery in the hospital. I don't even remember it. So, my kids went to Texas on December 9th. Then our attorney told us that they filed for permanent guardianship for my kids! We went to court on February 14th, their attorney took the entire day so we could not even testify. The judge spoke to the kids that day and we found out that they told the judge that they wanted to come home. But, we had to continue. Our next court date was March 15th. 35 minutes before the hearing, my brother-in-law went to the sherriff and told him that my husband molested my 5 year old son! So we testified in court. Their attorney said I was a drug addict, I guess people with back surgery's should not be able to even have anesthetic for it. :evil: I had already been to my primary care doc and had him wean me off all narcotics that I had been on. We submitted a list and description of all my meds at court. Their attorney kept asking me what all of them were for. Like my Methotrexate, Dilantin, Neurontin, and Plaquenil. I have Lupus. Anyway, She asked me if I was in a drug program. I responded by saying, I have no need to be in one, do you want me to take a drug screen?? She cut me off.
My daughter has a back condition that might cause her to have a spinal fusion when puberty comes. My sister had said that she wanted to put her in martial arts. I asked her not to and I had her doctor say something about it. He said no. My sister did it anyway. My son was on an antidepressant when he left Indiana, my sister took him off it! The judge had ordered that the Indiana parenting time guidelines be in order. They have not followed it. We are only able to speak to the kids once or twice a week!! I have not seen a report card, or even prescriptions written for my children.
The detective in Indiana told our criminal attorney that he did not believe the allegations against my husband. But, the kids had to be spoken to by the police in Texas. The detective also told our criminal attorney that the judge had said that he was going to order the children to come home on March 15th but couldn't now because of these allegations. Well, the kids were spoken to in Texas by a social worker at the local PD. The tapes were sent back to Indiana. We got a call from our criminal attorney on Tuesday this past week stating that there was no case as nothing bad was said on the tapes and the kids would be returning home. The judge had been on vacation until Wednesday, and the courts were closed Good Friday. I wanted the kids home for Easter! I am so upset about all of this. The other day, my son was sent under a car that was turned on to get a piece of paper that my brother-in-law dropped. He hit his head on the open car door and ended up with staples in his head. What kind of person makes an 8 year old go underneath a car when that child could burn himself on the tailpipe???? About a month ago, my 5 year old told me on the phone that he had a secret that he could not tell me. He said "Uncle Rich told me that I could not tell anyone about our secret." What kind of secret does a 50 year old man have with a 5 year old boy?! I am terrified that my brother-in-law is the molester and he was trying to cover up by making false claims against my husband. CPS in Texas won't do a thing. They investigated when my brother-in-law picked up my 8 year old son and threw him on the ground, making his face bleed. Also, my 8 year old son called 911 one night because he felt my sister hurt him by grabbing his arm and twisting it real hard. The police went to the home and yelled at my son for calling! Then when they left, my sister picked up a book and hit him across the face for it. I had called to see if there was a report and they told me that it was a false call. I told the police down there that if they get a 911 call from a child at that house that they need to respond as my son was calling for help!
This has been so hard on everyone. My children have missed Christmas and now Easter. Our Christmas tree is still up with their presents waiting for them. When I get the kids back I am planning on sueing my brother-in-law for all of this especially the false molestation claim. It is criminal in Indiana to do this but it needs to be proved first, so I doubt that he will be prosecuted for that one.
4H is starting up and dog shows are starting. My daughter has started handling our German Shepherds in the show ring, and she has already missed a specialty show here. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do.
