I gave birth to my son on April 4, 2010. On April 5 2010, child protective service workers came to my hospital room and took my newborn son into custody.
I received the petition on April 6, 2010 and the basis for taking my child from me, was my bi-polar disorder and a no-contact order between me and my fathers child, which shouldn’t have been in place to begin with.
I am in Coos Bay/North Bend, OR. My first court date was on April 7, the next was held on April 19. I have one coming up on July 1, and they are already planning on adopting out my son. There was no abuse or neglect allegation and so far, I am only allowed to have one visit a week.
At my last visit, my son had a dirty diaper before he was even brought in to see me. My son is a little over a month old and I need to be able to get to know my baby. I am perfectly capable of taking care of my son and I need help.
I want my son back so he knows that I love him. Can anyone help me?
