I had a pre adopt child I was unable to keep due to her

I had a pre adopt child I was unable to keep due to her extreme behavior as well as my declining health . Her social worker assured me that she would allow me to keep in touch with her and i have knowledge that her supervisor, the child's therapist and the group home parents aree in support of this. The social worker told me she will allow some contact in writing when I emailed her and her supervisor and always puts in writing how much she supports me remaining in her life. However, she then tells the group home people that they are instructed ot not let her speak with me. She is being dishonest and it is hurting a child who has no one. I believe she is doing this because she is upset with me. My therapist ( a former child advocate said i will get results if I can get an atty to write a letter explaining my value in this child's life. I do not believe the social worker is doing what is in this child's best interest and I know her better than anyone at this point because she lived with me. What can I do?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: pennsylvaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have emails and texts that prove she agreed to allow contact. The last email I sent ot her I included her supervisor on the email and she was very kind and confirmed that she will allow contact. I later called the group home and they said the worker called to reinforce the fact that she wants no contact allowed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No i think that's good for now. I don't want ot be too wordy. Thanks

My daughter and Ex-wife live in Connecticut. She has sole

My daughter and Ex-wife live in Connecticut. She has sole custody, last month I was notified by my daughter's god father that my ex-wife was committed in Massachusetts and diagnosed with sever schizophrenia and bi-polar disease. She was hiding in a hotel and hiding from the Gov't supposedly and cut her and my daughters hair off to seem unrecognizable. My daughter was placed in foster and has sense been released. I live in Myrtle Beach and made phone calls up there to the police and child services. After getting no help I drove 14 hours up there only to find out that, child services decided not to investigate it. I went to Massachusetts and all they could do is tell me there was a case and that is it and won't get back to me. I went to the Juvenile court in Massachusetts (with all the documents to prove it's my daughter) and they only told me that my daughter was taken away and then returned to my ex-wife and they could not tell me more. I went and filled and emergency motion Ex Parte in Hartford to have temporary custody until a hearing to find out what is happening and it was denied within 20 minutes without me seeing a judge. I have a court date in CT on Jun 1st however; the marshall who is supposed to serve her can't find her and he is not returning my calls. I called the CT state troopers office and they were not interested in telling me if my daughter was ok because I don't have custody. Everywhere I call school etc. They have been informed not to talk to me… It is like the twilight zone.. This can't be real when all I am is worried about my daughter who is ten.
