Very VERY glad it worked out this way!  But I'm not suprised... I'm not suprised, because this is how it should have turned out and most of the time it either does turn out as it should, or CPS under-responds as opposed to over-responding.  In fact you got an average social worker, not an especially nice one.  Most of them act the way this one did.  We just hear about the few awful exceptions more than we hear about the good ones.


Either way, odds were way in your favor that you and your family would be fine and I'm so so glad you are!

I'm glad to hear you have some relief! Take a deep breath, enjoy your kids, and make that neighbor a nice plate of laxative brownies. She needs them. Really, I can't believe anyone who knows where a stray kid belongs would call the cops rather than just return the kid home. It was the first time, not the tenth, that it happened. Geez.
