Your attorney is wrong and is advising you to break the law. You must take your child back. However, take a picture of your child prior to dropping her off. Have in the picture that days newspaper to show the date.


Notify child services that you are taking the child back and the danger she is in.


As a final step, CHANGE LAWYERS AT ONCE.
