Thank you for your follow-up, Margaret.I will be very blunt and direct with you, if I may, since it appears to me that you want just the truth without the coloring. Once CPS is involved it becomes a very difficult process. However CPS is out there for the best interest of the children, and if they see that the children are not being mistreated, parents are taking classes and are acting in good faith, unless they have something directly against you or they think that the process you are pursuing is not fast enough or you are not fit enough,they may get involved against you. But far more likely CPS will allow the process to take place and unless your husband regresses, you would be able to keep the children. I do suggest that you retain counsel and have the attorney evaluate what CPS is requesting that you perform to make sure all of it is reasonable. But no, this isn't a situation where all hope is lost, in fact you have a very strong chance in keeping the children if you perform what CPS is requesting of you.Good luck.
