Please explain the basic facts first.
The father had a stroke, where the child resided full time, and he's no longer able to care for the child. Since the stroke, this child has been living with me, full tim. He has many behavioural disabilities, requiring 24-hour supervision and has assaulted me. I've been in touch with children's services to find an alternate residence and would like to give up my parental rights.
I am so sorry.
Are you the biological mother>
No, he is adopted
by the father & myself
So the CAS is not going to be very happy about this.
You will need to really stick up for yourself.
You can call and make a report.
i did have a meeting with them but they are looking into how they can help, if at all
make a report with who?
Say what is happening and indicate that you cannot safely care for the child.
You have to say you do not want help.
You have to say that you cannot keep him say and that he is in danger because you cannot control him.
I have made a report with them and I did advise them I don't want counselling, I need him out of my house
And you have to say that they need to apprehend him.
Call again and say it's essential at crisis level and they need to come and take him.
they said they don't want to take him right away, they want to find the 'right' place for him
They don't want to but ultimately they will.
Tell them he must be placed in a foster home now.
There are foster parents that will take him now.
They do short term fostering.
can i be charged with abadonment?
Not if you insist they take him.
You are not abandoning him.
CAS has said he doesn't fit in a family environment due to the requirement for 24 hour supervision
You just cannot do what is needed.
Then he needs to be in a group home or some other governmental institution and there are lots of them.
They don't want to fund this but they will have to.
The have jurisdiction over him for three more years so they need to do this.
okay, thank you for your help
