When it rains it pours. Here I am trying to get the DDD involved so I can get services for the children (such as respite and therapy). Instead the DDD guy gets Child Protective Services (CPS) involved. We had the police here last night. The police man said he COMPLETELY understood why I had a chain lock on the door at night. Today, near 1pm, a CPS worker stopped by the house. Bailey did as I asked. She did not let her in. The woman said she wanted to come in. Bailey said no and said the police where here last night and found no issues so WHY was she out here. The lady said SHE had to ask questions of the family and talk to the children. Bailey said she was not comfortable with giving out information on the children without me present. In the end the lady gave Bailey her card and said to have me call her.
I have now called an attorney. This is the first time I have dealt with CPS and I know enough from others that I have to be cautious. Affording an attorney this time of year will be hard but worth it!
