My son was 6 when he died of brain cancer, but I lost my rights do to being a drug addict. but I have cleaned up my act since then a complete 360. Now see I have 2 children, my sons last name was changed because he was just born, but my daughter was 7, so they didn't change her name. Yes it was a legal adoption. I completely lost my rights as a mother. When I gave birth , yes I was messed up on METH, my son was addicted to, my daughter was living with my DAD, who is a registered sex offender, I was to but couldn't deal with the B.S. so I left, but left knowing my daughter was safe with my step mom. C.P.S. placed both my daughter and I there under the circumstances that we went to child therapist every 3 weeks, when I was 14-18. Now C.P.S is saying that, that was a mistake placing us there and that it should have never happened. JACOB my son was born 11-28-06, and died 4-2-13. I just found out 3 days ago. What do I do.
