My daughter in in jail and now in a mental inst. in Conroe TX
I do not know whom the father is and cps is unable to find him but my daughter gave two name but not sure if the are the father of my granddaughter.
When my granddaugter was born 4/25/2013 i got a call from CPS which at the time i was in jury duty. I missed the call and next i know during the break my husband txt call urgent CPS is at our house. I did not know my daughter was having a baby due to she was not communicating with me and was in jail at the time and when she had my granddaughter. I informed once i made it to the house that i would be willing to get my granddaughter also the same as i did for my grandson because she is family, but i did not want the events to be the same as my grandson cause i felt at that time he was just another file they wanted to get off their desk. My granddaughter is sick she is still in the hospital. I was the one to go to the hospital as they need some one to do paper work for her care for medical care. Cps did not get full custodinanship until after i did all the leg work for my granddaughter to have surgery. I have tried to work with cps, they have lied to me about the home study, lied on the doc's of the home study. I called case works, mgrs, program directors to just get info. about the home study. The calls i made was not returned. How i found out about approval/decline was with the attorney for my granddaughter that we were declined. Then after several calls to the cps case workers mgr she called me back yesterday. Then i got the full details of why it was declined and was told that we were not willing to give doc's regarding our back ground which i informed why would i keep anything from them which would be public record. When i spoke to the case work on Thursday after calling from a diff. # XXXXX caught her off guard she still did not tell me why refused to speak to me when i was asking questions...I even had my mgr who is a foster mom. heard how she would not answer any of my question and was very hostile and stated you can speak to my mgr and stated i must have something to hide.
They decided to put my granddaughter in Foster care and no it is not family. I did give them my mgr's name which she is a foster mom, but i don't think they are considering that. Just based on how the case worker spoke to her and told her she needs to call her agency.

I want to tell you once again thank you for the information. I am sad to inform you yesterday may granddaughter passed yesterday. My heart is so sadden, so very hurt instead of fighting for her to come home i am now planning a funeral. Thank you once again for you support.
