    My life has been turned upside down by DHS, on Feb 19th, my former landlord fulfilled his threats of putting me out for nonpayment of a deplorable home. I have been through the ringer since last year, my fiance got arrested and has been incarcerated since, I was left with my kids and his small son. I tried my hardest to keep my kids safe and with me no matter the cost to myself. I went through eviction, job loss, and abuse, all I wanted was my kids with me and a roof over our heads. I’ve had very little contact with my kids and my stepson, I’m completely left out here. Nobody is listening to me and I’m sure my economic status, race and religion are a big part in it. I’ve been reading about the horrid actions of this system and I’m scared. I was just told today if I don’t meet their standards by Feb 2016, I can say goodbye to my kids. I don’t have a big support system, so I have very few to tell my story. Hopefully this commentary will gain me the help I need and my kids deserve.

      I understand how you feel. DHS has all three of my boys. As long as you do what you have to do they can take your rights away. Don’t let them see you get angry, get friendly with the foster parent if possible. Let your voice be heard in a good way. Go to City Hall and talk to your district leader. They can make calls and get you answer. If your in Philly it’s this place called the Achieving Reunification Center (ARC) 714 Market Street, Suite 500 Philadelphia Pa, 19106, they help it’s a one stop shop they have everything you will need there. Honey your not alone, KEEP YOUR HEAD God wouldn’t put to much on use that we can’t bare.
