My children have been removed
What do I need to know?
“I got a phone call from my Mum saying my son’s been removed from her care. I ran into the school to my children and I got to speak to them in the office for a little while”.
“I had to walk away before the police and DOCS turned up…”
“The kids were crying and saying they’d be good. I didn’t know what to do. As soon as they were taken, I walked round the corner from the school and just collapsed in the road. My sister and a neighbour had to come get me and I was just screaming. I didn’t know what was happening and didn’t understand why. I thought I was doing everything right.”
