Over the last year, he has went downhill. He cries, wanting to come back home. His dad was suppose to keep all the services that I had in place going and he has not kept his promise. We even had a meeting with my sons therapist to go over everything and where we had his records packaged up so nothing was out of place and that all services could continue without change. He has taken my son off of all his meds except one for adhd.
My son has also said how his dad and stepmom both mistreat him. My other son says the same thing. They have been hit with a board for punishments, they have been left alone with the two younger kids, at the time were 2 years old and 2 months old while they go to the store or wherever for an hour or more. My kids are only 10 and 11. They don't know how to care for kids that young. They did have their step brother there that is 12, but even he can't handle my oldest boy if something was to set him off.
I recently petitioned the court for a modification of child custody to hopefully get my son back. Now my ex has also put in his own petition to try an get my younger son. We go to our second court hearing where we actually go in front of the judge on Monday. If anyone has any advice or any supportive comments, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
