Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

When was the final care order made?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
July 2015
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

What was the reason for the order?

What has changed since July?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had a break down they said emotional harm. I do suffer from mental health. But am taking right medication now. We have been through a lot since 2011 my son age 23 went to jail for a long time. In 2013 my mother passed away I went real low. I asked social services for help and this is what has happened. My daughter is smart girl I would never harm her.
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

How long has she been in her Current placement?

Would your doctor confirm an improvement since July?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She has been in this placement since September. Before this she was with a carer who left my 12 year old daughter with her 16 year old son while the carer went to a wedding. My daughter had to keep running away from there before they moved her to this another horrible place.All this is affecting my daughter school work and my daughter loves school.

What will a medical report on you say has happened since July?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oh ok I have been attending doctors for all my appointment iI often take someone with me. I am taking the medication. I have a good support net work now.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My health is the best it's been since all this happened. I am 53 and am menopausal. In the hearing social services made three different care plans. The second to last was to give my daughter back to me. But the father came out of nowhere and because i could not get on with a man who has never been around for my daughter they changed the plan to keep her in care. But the social worker said that unification with me at some point would be recommended
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Well that is positive. Has anything happened to progress that since July?

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

Were you taking the medication in July and have you gone back to your solicitors who represented you in July and advised them of your change of circumstances?
