on sunday my brother told me that his sister inlaw was going to court today and that because of her drug probelm s.services were taking her 2 kids off her a lad of 6 and a 2year old girl.my brother works in london but he and his wife live with his mother inlaw locally in the north.
he said s.services had asked them to take the lad but not the girl as shes got special needs(i`ve never seen the girl so not sure what they are and only met the boy three or four times).
so i phoned him tonight to see what happened at court and he told me, something i cant quite understand, the granmother and auntie didin`t go to court because it would be to much for them so they aren`t taking him and hes going into a home too. i haven`t been able to think about anything but the poor kids since.
my brother says he thinks its **** but it is too much for them to deal with.
as yet i`ve not said anything about it,but i really feel angry,dissapointed and conned by them.i just dont think you can say you love someone and do this to them,its family and you just manage however you can,its like they dont care and i`d feel uneasy about leaving my boys with such callous people,althoguh i know they`d never hurt them physically theres not that special bond there if they can do this .really feel like i dont know how they are or what there about. we are a really close family i never dreamt anyone i knew could do this.
i want to ask them "if anything happened to you two would you like me and the wife to take your kids in as our own or sling them away and forget about them"
sorry to rant on would really like to know what other people would do/think
