Why Won't DCS Protect An Innocent Inf...

I'm VERY glad this worked out so well.
I believe part of the reason DCS performed so well was because the involved family members can be as mean as bulldogs when they have to be- DCS doesn't want to have to face you later in court if something goes horribly wrong.
I was praying that the person who initially started the thread would be able to pass a home check and drug test, or ANYONE in the family could so the child could go home with family members. I'm assuming all contact with the mother and father is supervised, seeing how if the infant is already with the grandparents, he's actually in protective custody.
Some advice:
1. You still have to go to court to secure custody rights BEYOND protective custody- that means if it's all over tomorrow and the child DOES go home with the mother, you have visitation rights, at least, granted to you by a judge, on paper. If the mother interferes with your visits at any time, she can go to jail for custodial interference. This will allow you to keep a VERY close eye on the mother, the child, and the whole situation.
2. Because this is the first time around with DCS ( and usually, it won't be the last - DCS can also be mean), the requirements that DCS will put in place will not be that hard to attain for the mother. She will be ordered to go to so many hours worth of drug classes, pass drug screens, etc. However, NONE of those things means anything - it just means she cleans up her act long enough to get her kid back. HER problem is going to be once DCS is in your business, they are REALLY up in your business. You can call at any time if you think she's doing drugs and they will pop up on her doorstep with a drug testing cup for her to pee in. DEMAND that someone visually watch her urinate in the cup - She has no rights to privacy once DCS is involved anyway. I personally know a woman who this happened to, and she went in the bathroom and poured Mountain Dew or something similar into the cup and PASSED the drug test. I couldn't believe the stupidity of the DCS worker involved..probation and parole officers watch you pee into a cup, this shouldn't be any different. She tests positive for anything, that baby is going right back to the grandparents while she works through yet ANOTHER year of drug classes and so forth.
3. Last thing, but this is VERY important:
Try to mantain a civil relationship with the mother. DCS will tell you that if everyone in the family doesn't try to work together, the child will be removed completely from the family and placed in foster care - this is the WORST CASE scenario that could happen. Meanwhile, congratulations - I'm very happy this worked out!}:)
It is very simple...if the gov. would say the mother gets no welfare if she gets the baby back. Then put her butt in jail if she does not properly care for the child's needs. Case closed.

i know the girl casey that just had baby at lakeway hospital, why dont you tell it like it is, she got herself mixed up with your lazy bum of a son that is addicted to pain pills, pot, alochol and meth it would be hard for anyone to stay straight being around a monster like him, he was very mean to her beating her, choking her, think about that casey dont you think that is enough to make the baby jerk. the dcs has gotten involved with the case my granddaughter passed her drug tests ask your son if he passed his, ill tell you myself he failed for pot and meth. so dhs took the baby temp. and put him in the hands of man that has had drug charges and assault charges, you let me know where the baby that she loves would be better off at

You are in some serious denial if you think you granddaughter was forced to do drugs or just got mixed up with the wrong crowd. She's a big girl and if she was big enough to have sex she should be big enough to stop using drugs and take care of that baby. Ma'am your granddaughter deserves to be in jail for attempted murder. The longer you continue to enable her the longer she will continue to use drugs and scam the system and place blame on everyone else. Ill pray for that innocent baby that was born into such a screwed up family. Also I highly doubt DCS will place a baby with anyone that has had any charges. Considering I was just approved through a backroud check to babysit a foster child. I couldn't even have any type of record to pass. That's just to babysit.

I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAY EXCEPT THE DCS DOES MESS UP, THEY TOOK THE BABY FOR A LITTLE WHILE TO GIVE THE MOTHER A CHANCE TO GET HER LIFE IN ORDER WHICH SHE IS WORKING ON ,SHE IS ENTERING A 30 DAY REHAB PROGRAM TOMORROW, DCS HAS SAID SHE WILL HAVE HER BABY BACK WITHIN 15 DAYS AFTER COMPLETING THE PROGRAM. THE THING THAT CONCERNS ME THE MOST IS THE LAW SAYS A PERSON THAT HAS HAD AN ASSAULT CHARGE AGAINST THEM CANNOT HAVE CUSTODY OF THESE BABIES THAT IS WHAT THEY DID PUT THE BABY IN A HOME WHERE THERE HAS BEEN ASSAULT CHARGES

Well if that is in fact the situation, I feel horrible that was the safest place for the infant.
I really hope that she has to be clean a little longer than 15 days before she deserves that baby back.

Lady, that doesn't give your precious, cant-possibly-be-their-fault relative a pass to eat so many pills her baby is born drug addicted! You are in serious denial. And NO, that isn't enough to make a baby jerk...WITHDRAWL makes a baby spastic. Stop blaming everyone else and look at the person who was responsible for the health of that child where it should have been the most safe- in the womb! Your relative KNEW what she was doing, and there's no excuse for it.

This post was not opened to trash anyone, talk mean to each other, or fight. This post was opened to bring to everyone's attention the fact that an innocent infant was born addicted to drugs because his mother had done drugs during her entire pregnancy and it seemed that nobody was going to do anything to step in and get him out of his mother's drug filled environment. Jeanette Wilson, it will be great if the mother of this baby stops taking drugs, and the father as well. It would be great for them to be sober parents that could take care of this precious little baby. We all want him to be where he will be taken care of and loved, just like he is right now. He is with family that will take care of him perfectly. LET HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!!!!!!

I don't know who you are, but thank you for looking at this situation objectively. I thought the post would end after he was placed with family members, but some people love to get on here and trash everyone.

So after you saw him you decided he was worth a half a pill a day. you should be arrested for child abuse because this baby will probably suffer for a lifetime . We all hope you get straightened out, then when you do, they should require you to never have another child...after you get out of jail.
