RE: Miss your kids?
Yes, I do miss them, but because they were removed due to my mental illness, and not because they were being abused, I get to spend time with them three or more times weekly, for several hours each time. I am allowed to take them away from their foster home (which is my sister-in-law's house) and bring them back at the end of the visit. Yesterday I took my sons to their swim lessons, then to see train cars parked near our respective homes. We had a wonderful time, and the boys requested we go there again on our next Monday visit.

While I agree that it's sad that my kids were removed, I also know that it was in their best interest, although I didn't know it at the time because I didn't know I was mentally ill. I want what's best for my children, and if that means that I never get custody back, then I will learn to live with that. In the meantime, I will keep working to become mentally healthy again, and try to be a good example to my children of how we should keep trying to succeed in this world. As I tell them, "Never give up, never surrender!" ;)
