I know I'm a worthless piece of garbage. I just can't take raising them alone no more. Their Mother just passed 3 months ago and I can't hold it together anymore. Are there any good government offices I can go to and turn them over to the state or something? Got no family or friends that I'd trust to ask for help. I just want to bail. 8 10 12 and 15 are their ages. The younger ones is the one I worry about. My older ones will be OK I think. I'm open to advice. I just need a break before I lose my mind.

Call Cps...I believe they have foster parents that give respite care to those in need. Under your circumstances I'm sure you would qualify. Best of luck to you. It sounds like you need time to grieve and put yourself back together. A death of a loved one is very hard. I can't imagine what you must be feeling and going through.

you want to turn your kids over to the same bureaucracy that gave us the VA and DMV??

I'd recommend letting them live with friend of the family or something. Not really an adoption on paper or anything. Just allow them to claim the kids on taxes and what not. Legally they are still yours, so your responsibility, but they will be raised by another family. We did that with a family friend of ours. He went to private school with us and everything. Played sports with us. I consider him a brother. Doing this you can make sure you can send these kids to homes that are going to care for them the right way. You never know what kids will get exposed to in foster homes.

I'm not sure what we did was legal, but it was like, boarding school or something. LIke the dude came and lived with us, ate with us, we bought him school clothes, he went to church with us, but we weren't legal guardians.

Hey. I am here to help. I will take in your kids for the lowest cost per child in the area. Really, I am cheaper than anyone else around here. If you can set up an email account, post your info and I will send you all the details. I sure could use the extra money right now and it would give you and your kids a break from each other. Hit me up if I can help.

I know things are rough but those children need you. I wouldn't give them away on paper ever!!! if your in cabell county call Phyllis Apple she will lead you to the right direction. And they have respite care for situations like yours. And I couldn't imagine what your going through or your babies. Hopefully, you get the help you need.

Thanks. Who is Mrs. Apple? Is there a certain department or agency? I feel slightly more optimistic today, but I still feel overwhelmed. Just need a break for a couple of days I think.

you just need a vacay, please don't leave your kids you will regret it, get yourself into church and the kids.. and too if you dont have family members or friends you trust why would you throw them into hands of strangers? God help you and what you are going through, I would hate for you to give your kids up think long and hard on this because once you "give them away" there may be no taking back I know its probably hard right now but your kids will hate you forever if you go through with this the kids didnt ask to be brought into this world and now you dont have their mother you want to just throw them away, that is a part of your wife that will carry on forever, you need to stick this out go to counseling with your children prayers for you and your kids
p.s. I pray your kids doesn't know what you are thinking about doing

You sound like some lazy divorced (oh I mean widowed) parents I know. Only want the children when they get older because you can't handle them at a younger age but yet I bet you criticize those who will take care of them at a young age. You know who you are.

......Not many people would actually ask for help so, quit criticizing and let's give information to this man. I'm sure he means well we aren't in his shoes and I'd have to say, I'd never want to lose my children's father for anything in this world. Couldn't imagine what he's going through let alone the children. If I were him I'd want a few days or even a week to grieve. I truly hope they all get the help they deserve.

Thank you for your input, especially those who were kind enough to offer me real advice. I put an ad on craigslist and found someone in Guyandotte who will let my children stay with them free for a few days, just long enough for me to pull myself together. I did not know what else I could do and it was like a light went off in my head and told me to tun to Craigslist. It worked. I had a few offers within 24 hours. This is not a long term thing if I decide to do it at all. I have told myself that it is not really any different than finding a babysitter. I know in my heart that this will be good for myself. It is just for a few days if I decide to allow my children to stay with them. My children love dogs and the person has a few dogs. Things are looking up for sure.

I have a hard time believing this post, I'm sure this is another troll. BUT if it is real you're a terrible parent. DO NOT EVER take your children to some freak from Craigslist. Good Lord. Come on dude. You want them to be murdered? Apparently you don't care. If it's really THAT hard for you to man up and take care of the kids you made then contact the state and they can be put with a foster family.
