what can we say
you may all have read previouse post with thr trouble we had but being easy going ?? we gave daughter a chance to show we she realy cared for daughter over christmas with we fact she started drinking at 5pm fact she thought more of arguing with her so called bf on the phone fact swearing so much g/c repeated this time an time again fact she when out would leave g/c to her own after so long fact she gave drink to g/c fact she put soap in g/c mouth because she swore fact she threatend to stab bf fact she threatend to get his wife yes wife out the country
oh yes there was a couple of good points she gave g/c a wash / shower played with her for a while till the novalty wore off yes she was told about this behaviour waist of time you know i wish i had left her there g/c thought it was great we now have to try to undo what as been done
FACT SHE WILL NEVER GO WITH WE AGAIN

Im sorry it didnt go right, but at least now you can stop worrying that you havent done the right thing.

You will get through it, im sure even better now you know not to give another chance! we all do it, we are human, pitty the parents dont have feelings too!

I do hope you have made a record of this. Her behavior was child abuse. I also hope you report this to ss as well. That said you have done the right thing you have tried to accommodate her and now this has proved useless. Your grandchild and you will come through this and be stronger for it. The child may seem to have liked it but I bet she really isn't happy. She probably feels she should be happy about seeing Mummy. She needs to know it is ok not to like things that happened. Best wishes to you

urgent advice please

as you all know from posts under pongo we gave daughter a chance to prove herself this as you know didnt go to well however this is not the point
we have just found out that the social services are going to put second g/c who we have only seen by photo who anitialy we said we couldnt help due to daughter and her behaviour is going to be put up for adoption as now social say they will not put forward the so called bf who i state is already married as sole carer
an told daughter that she is unsuitable due to the wasy she was brought up ??
social services have refused to look at we as poss carers and use the fact that in the family cronolagy there were things from our past years ago that are no longer the same as unsuitable an wont consider we yet we were assesed with first g/c fully backed by the other social department an given residence by the court
is there anything we can do how can we be vetted assesed an backed for first g/c but as we originaly didnt help we are classed as unsuitable any advice would be greatly appreciated

ps to above we have asked social services under the data protection act for a copy of the information they hold on we but have stated that the actual information does not relate to an individual person so we are not allowed it

have you put your request to be assessed in writing? See a solicitor urgently for free session and especially if you qualify for legal aid. As you say you have been approved once this time try a more protective order like SGO. Be sure this is what you want though you had previously said no. Is this a reaction to the news child will be adopted or do you really think you want to do this. Where does it stop how many more ? If you are happy with your decision then go for it do not back down until it is over. With the history you can give you can ask for less / no contact.Your daughter is unlikely to change. We all bring up our children the best we can. The don't come with instructions. The come as individuals with minds of their own. We guide them they make there own choices. We learn from the past and adapt they don't.

hi pongo,
did they give their refusal in writing? if not, ask again in writing and keep going until you get refusal in writing. how can you fight against their decision if you don't know what they've based it on?

and what irene said.
and phone the frg helpline.
and good luck.

pongo hun i know all the trouble you have had with daughter but, please dont take this the wrong way as is not ment as critasism but ss will look at the fact that you are still having probs with daughter this has not eased at all in the time you have had g/d she is getting away with too much soap in g/d mouth!!!! we too had mum over the first xmas and must admit went well but she isnt even allowed to take g/d to toilet alone let alone wash or shower her. im not getting at you i can just see the problems you are having and they will increase ten fold if you have the other child and i too agree at how many will you call it a day she can have 10 more kids and not be allowed any of them are you going to try for them all. now as i see it you have not bonded with this child yes it is a blood relative but if adopted she could have wonderful life away from mum with you mum will always be on the scene is this really what you want? can you help your g/d as much as you do now if you have the other child? i think you really need to think about this and not let your heart rule your head. i dont envy you hun but i know you will do the right thing for everyone. good luck and remeber to take care of you no one else will xxx.
