Hi there, I'm a mother of 2 children, aged 3 & 1. I myself am only 21. In May 2014, child safety took my children into care under voluntary care agreements and returned them to me after 10 weeks, and a phone call my stepfather made to the department. Everything was going fine, I was seeing the FIN worker like they asked and going to parenting classes to help me manage both very demanding babies. In November 2014 child safety interviews again apparently having reports I was neglecting my children, even leaving them unsupervised all weekend whilst I went out clubbing. All reports were completely untrue! They then placed my children into foster care and I fought tooth and nail to get them back only to be slapped with a 1 year child protection order in March 2015! I went to legal aid to ask for advice wanting to appeal the decision, only to be told there's no point. I've been doing all my research, looking for a loophole as my 3 year old now tells me she hates me and my 1 year old doesn't know who I am besides some lady that visits them every fortnight! They have caused so much harm to my children and myself emotionally, I need to know where to start! They can't get away with this and do it to other undeserving parents as well! Please help!
