Hi, on the 13th September 2016, My children were put into care by myself voluntary (section 20)
I done this due to being in an abusive relationship, my husband physically and emotionally abused me and my children.
I had to ensure they were safe so I made the call, now there adopted ! I couldn't get them back due to mental health issues, financial issues and housing. I honestly don't no how to cope it's really starting to eat me up recently I feel all alone and sad the majority of the time.
Please if anyone is in this situation I need to talk to someone
thanks for reading
