I have worked hard to have a peaceful life. It’s as calm as it can be with three active teenagers in the home. At the last court appearance, I got full custody of the children from DCF. They were in foster care for ten long, agonizing months.
I worked hard to get the kids home. I obtained a suitable home. I did parenting classes and countless drug tests. Whatever they wanted me to do, I did without complaining.
At one point, I was driving three hours to their foster parent’s home to see them for 45 minutes. He did not do that. He refused to see the kids unless they were brought to…
